AYON ISLAND

(20 July) populated by Chukchi reindeer herders. When we visited there were white out conditions and it was cold. In zodiacs, we traveled in pairs with backup radios, arriving after midnight. There was an impressive school where the children learn English as well as Chukokan. There are computers for those from age 7 on. We gave them a huge map of the world and some supplies. They gave us a 20 pound bag of freshly caught salmon and char which we enjoyed at the bar the following night.  My 77th Birthday!
