Our friends from the Commander Islands had an action-packed couple of days in Anchorage before flying back home. They visited the Anchorage Museum, experienced the American shopping mall, and had a picnic with paddle-boarding the first day.
The second day was also full– They were given a guided tour of the new engineering department at the University of Alaska, Anchorage (UAA), and visited the library archive to find photographs of the Commander Islands taken in the 1930s. Lex took the boys to Kincaid Park on a moose quest (they were all hiding). In the afternoon they visited the Native Heritage Center, and Jenya took the kids to the Trampoline Park while Natalia squeezed in a little more shopping and enjoyed the beautiful flowers downtown.
