    Personally I think the indigenous people of Papua New Guinea look heaps better.

    A father and son in Ethiopia, as well as the AK47 the man had a wooden gourd with warm milk in it which he gave me a drink of, the only animal I could see that it might have come from was a horse.

    These photos were taken in the small Inupiaq Eskimo village of Teller, Alaska, located 72 miles north of Nome, Alaska. I flew my motorcycle to Nome then rode out the dirt highway to Teller and spent a couple nights there. These three young boys were my welcoming committee. They saw me riding around their small village on my bike and had to come check out the visitor. I challenged them to a "bike race" but they declined, for some reason. :D

    This is Alex. He's adorable! I wanted to pick him up and hug him but resisted the urge.

    This bundle of energy would NOT sit still for a minute. He was all over the place all day long. He wore shoes that were at least 5 or 6 sizes too big for him, but they didn't slow him down at all. I love his deep brown eyes.

    The poverty in this village is quite apparent and sure gave me a greater appreciation for all of my blessings. The Natives up here still live a mostly subsistence lifestyle. A popular saying amongst some organizations is "visit the grocery store outside your door," as that's where a lot of their food comes from.

    I can see why. Those children are beautiful. I like that you get up close with the camera.

    I spent the 4th of July in the small Inupiaq Eskimo village of Teller, Alaska, about 72 miles north of Nome. There are about 270 people in the village who still mostly live a subsistence lifestyle. There is a high level of poverty and life in this unforgiving environment is hard, especially in the winter. I was thankful that I felt welcome in this community as I had heard from lots of people that it wasn't a "friendly" village. Here are some photos from some of the competitions that took place. I hadn't planned on being in this village on the 4th; I was supposed to be across the harbor at another village, but something told me to stay in Teller. I'm glad I did as three of the buildings in the background of these photos burned down in a horrible fire a week after I left. A lot of the photos I took will be printed in a magazine we mail to our members and they will bring some happy faces to the people of Teller.

    Since I'm a grandmother, I competed in the "older women" age group with other grandmothers, even though I don't have gray hair. A group of 17 missionaries was in town so I wasn't the only white person.

    I loved the variety of expressions on the faces of this age group during the tug of war.
