Greetings From Kamchatka!

Yesterday morning, I arrived in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky. Yes, it’s a mouthful, but it’s also a place I’ve wanted to come to for over 30 years. It’s a place as dynamic as it’s shape on a map. Today, I had my first day of alpine skiing this season, in a location as beautiful as could be, skiing down almost to the edge of the sea.

Of course, there will be more about Kamchatka later. For now, there are photos and stories to share of a very cold and windy far northern place. Here’s the link to photos from Tiksi:

Regardless of state politics, here’s to individually fostering friendship, communication and understanding with people everywhere.
