--> Kugluktuk, Nunavut, Canada (day 5)

Becky told me that it was quite hard to start a living in Kugluktuk on her own. Therefore she once listed the Positive Things About Kugluktuk on paper, which always seems to cheer her up. And most of it I can really understand now...
- the rainbow coloured rocks surrounding town
- gorgeous sunsets
- always somebody to drink tea with
- I can wake up 15 minutes before school starts and still be on time
- always have something to do
- it's quiet, lots of time for yourself
- the kids here need happy and enthusiastic people around
- so I can have many nephews and nieces I want to
- so many cool photos I can take here
- start any sort of program because there is a need for it


- everywhere you go some little person has a hug for you.

Enjoy the photos!
