:D .. Judging me to be a city bred fool, he started explaining how reindeers were friendly creatures that could be petted just like dogs.. And then he called another lady who opened up the gate to the reindeer's shed, and taking a basketful of leaves, heading towards them... beckoning me... I followed meekly.. wondering how the animals would react to a strangers presence.
I didnt even notice the time slip away.. until the guide guy came running and told me that the shuttle was going to leave! I bid Hungrryy and Thunder a hasty farewell and ran to catch the bus that was to take me back to downtown Anchorage.
Once there I went back to the hostel, picked up my bags that I had left there, and started walking towards the bus depot... to catch the bus to the airport. My trip was coming to an end :(
When I reached the bus depot, I realised that I had some more time to spare. And so, I opened up my netbook and scoured the area for wifis that I could leech off of :D .. I've been doing this all through my trip to Alaska and its so much fun!! Everytime I see a big hotel like the Marriot or the Sheraton, the first thing that strikes me is - free wifi :D
Anyway, soon it was time.. the bus arrived.. and I hopped on to it..
And with that, my first truly solo trip came to an end. And all I have to say is that, given that I had to go somewhere solo, I couldnt have chosen better than Alaska.
This has been the most perfect trip that I could ever imagine.
Words fail me now!
Of course, I only wish I had...like.. two weeks more!! :D .. But well, given the way things are...... it was perfect.
