JAN 18, 20 .. WINTER IN ANCHORAGE, ALASKA

Today, Saturday the 18th of January, we are leaving Anchorage, Alaska, and flying to Laughlin, Nevada (via Portland, Oregon, and Las Vegas, Nevada). 

So this will be our last and our final post showing some winter scenes in our immediate neighborhood here in Anchorage.










There you have it. Your next photos will be of desert scenery down in the Southwest region of the United States. These will come after I finish the series of posts of our Thanks For The Memories Year 2019 in Russian Siberia (Part FIVE will be next).

We hope you enjoyed some of our winter scenes of where we live in Anchorage, Alaska.

JAN 16, 20 .. WINTER IN ANCHORAGE, ALASKA







As you will see in the photos below, not every day is bright and sunny.






Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Sun out or the skies cloudy, our winter is beautiful.

JAN 12, 20 .. WINTER IN ANCHORAGE, ALASKA





I have hit an extremely busy period and it is just not possible, at this time, to put together Part FIVE of the series of Russian Siberia Year 2019 photos. 

Rather than let this site sit idle, Patti suggested that we post some photos of the winter beauty here in Anchorage, Alaska, that surrounds our condominium.

Now you know The Rest Of The Story about this and several upcoming posts here on blogspot.

JAN 7, 20 .. THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES YEAR 2019 .. RUSSIAN SIBERIA .. PART FOUR OF ?? PARTS

Here we go with Part FOUR, a few more Memories of Russian Siberia during our visit last year. 

"We have a question Captain? Did you see any Russian Siberian Husky Dogs?"

"Oh My! Yes Indeed! We saw many Russian Siberian Husky Dogs."

In Russia they are simply called Huskies. Only here in the U.S. do we tack-on the name Siberian Huskies.

Have a look at the below dog team.





















Now we will show photos of a visit to a kennel. The Kennel Lady opened up the kennel at the end of the day especially for us! This was one of the highlights of our entire visit to Russian Siberia.




























"Dad, if I try really hard, do you think that I could become a real Husky?"


Let's go from dogs to seals.

LISTVYANKA, RUSSIAN SIBERIA.

Below are a series of photos taken during a visit to the City of Listvyanka, Russian Siberia. 

We visited a Seal Nerpinarii (НЕРПИНАРИИ) to see trained seals perform.





NO PHOTOS OF THE SEALS WERE ALLOWED!








At the above point of the show, the Narrator turned to his left to get some toys for the seals and he spied yours truly. He very politely asked that I stop taking photos. I smiled and put my camera away.

We loved the show and were happy we visited it.

We hope that the above and below photos show how wonderful and pleasant our visit to Russian Siberia was.

A BASIC OUTDOOR MARKET





























Let's now jump from the above OUTDOOR MARKET in Listvyanka to another major trip highlight.

CHITA, RUSSIAN SIBERIA

Our translator in Chita was a Russian lady who was an English Teacher. She said it was a dream of hers for us to intermingle with some of her students and asked if we would be willing to do so.

We jumped at the opportunity.

First we met with the students she was tutoring in an English Club. We spent one hour with them and it was 'beyond wonderful'. 








You have got to realize that the Russians are so much like we are. Real people. Real characters. Below are two photos of one of our translators associates in the English Club.



Then we went 'big time'. She arranged for us to meet another much larger group in the Chita Library.







As I was snapping the above photos, I had a 'sinking feeling' that our tutor's anticipted crowd was not going to materialize and the event would fall flat.

Oh My!

Suddenly! 

In the crowd marched!




A few of the attendees wanted a photo with us.



The above two events are without a doubt major trip highlights for Patti and me.

This will be 'it' for Part FOUR.

Yes there will be a Part FIVE.
