Snow Hotel Reindeer and Sled Dogs in Kirkenes

It was a beautiful sunny day in Kirkenes and the dogs were ready to rumble.  One of the puppies found the giant hunk of meat when no one was watching. The Snow Hotel has 26 rooms and is open for 3  months. It is only 2,000 Kroner to stay. The inhabitants of Kirkenes can go to Russia to buy cheap vodka, cigarettes and gas and the Russians come over to buy diapers by the carload. They fed us reindeer sausage on lefse which they called lumpa with a hot berry drink when we arrived.IMG_0430 IMG_0436 IMG_0441 IMG_0446 IMG_0448 IMG_0452 IMG_0457 IMG_0459 IMG_0471IMG_0433 IMG_0476 IMG_0482 IMG_0483 IMG_0490
