Great welcome! I wonder if there are any tourists around...?

Not many this time of year...they come in summer when it is warmer to see the whales and bears

wish to see the whales!

the whales will be coming in a couple months and the Eskimos here will be hunting them

how sad, it is not forbidden to hunt them?

The eskimos here have been hunting them for thousands of years...they kill I think around 23 a year for food.
