Contrary to the situation last year, the requirement by the United States Custom and Border Protection for “all guests to present themselves for a mandatory ‘face to passport’ inspection upon arrival’ went extremely well.
Today we will brave the Alaska spring weather and take an excursion; “Kodiak Sightseeing & Russian Tea” and discover
• An insight into Kodiak’s Russian Orthodox Church
• Bear Town market souvenir and handicraft shopping
• Russian tea and treats — borsch, tea cakes and piroshikis
But first, Barbara took the first shuttle into town to do her early morning ‘snooping’.
Our tour description is taken from the HAL EXC tour page;
“Head down Cannery Row to learn about the fishing industry in Kodiak, with an introduction to this quaint, working Alaska city.
Visit the Russian Orthodox Church where the priest or a member of the clergy will talk about the Russian church and the historic role it has played in Alaska.
