It is bright and sunny in Inuvik at noon. And will remain so till midnight and beyond, I am told because this is the land of midnight Sun and the June is the month when there is 24-hour daylight.I am feeling slightly disoriented, jet lagged and fatigued. Staying at the Aurora Research Institute.
Inuvik is located inside the Arctic circle, it is Canada's Northern most town with a population of just about 3000 people. Right now a petroleum industry conference is on the town. you can hardly find any people or cars on the street. It is a quiet place.
Looking forward to fly to the Amundsen icebreaker tomorrow morning on a chartered flight.
Btw, I bought heavy duty boots from a military surplus store in Toronto for 97 canadian dollars and a Parka that the store guy said will keep me warm till minus 25 or so...
