luckily, we found ourselves at the top of a hill looking down at the buildings downtown. you can see a lot of the most popular buildings in iqaluit in the picture below. you can see the bright yellow airport on the left at the edge of town. the white square building that looks like an ice burg below the airport is one of the schools. the roundy pointy building to the right of the school is a church. city hall is hidden but i'll take some pictures soon and post them.
we ended up going to the museum and it was very neat. inuit tradition is so beautiful and interesting. after the museum we got some groceries. since i had the camera, i thought i'd give you an idea of some of the prices for groceries around here.
$39.14 for a smallish pumpkin! we saw one for $50 last week but it wasn't there anymore so...apparently someone was willing to pay that.
margarine! good thing we don't eat this shit.
we used to drink orange juice. now the plan is just to bite the bullet and get scurvy.
$21.99 for the smallest box of tide you can get. ughghghg.
i put the camera away at this point because i was getting some looks re: taking pictures of groceries.
