Hey everyone! This is Amy and Stephanie! Today was a VERY interesting day. We began the day by visiting the Norman Lowell Art Gallery. He had over two hundred and fifty of his paintings displayed in the gallery, and they were all of Alaskan scenery. They all really captured the essence of Alaska. After that, we traveled to the local Russian village and had a true Russian experience with a woman named Nina. Nina prepared a authentic Russian meal for us, and also exposed us to many Russian customs. For instance, the men in our group all got larger portions because of their gender. After we finished eating, she had Dr. Bezotte and Macy dress in Russian outfits because they bought something at her gift shop. From there, we took a driving tour of her village. She explained what each building represented to the people and we also got some nice pictures of bald eagles. She was a very entertaining hostess, to say the least! After departing from the Russian village, we went to the Anchor Point Visitors Information Center and had the opportunity to listen to a local speak about the history of Anchor Point. We learned a great deal about its discovery and how people made homestead here. It was really fascinating. Overall, it was a great day and we are looking forward to many more exciting days to come!
