After lunch, which incidentally was pizza, it was then off to the grocery store for food and a few last minute items that would come in handy in the days to follow. We would be traveling to field research sites in Council, Alaska on Friday and we would need to be prepared. Food prices are high in Nome because lacking roads to the outside world, all food and everything else for that matter has to be transported in by air or sea. That carries with it a high price.
Our afternoon ended as we hopped back in our vehicles for the short trip back to Nome. Tomorrow, we head off to Council and it looks to me like everyone is eager and ready for what lies ahead.
