The definition of fashion in bush Alaska
When we were at the Pippin musical on Saturday night last week, the fire alarm went off. We all had to be evacuated from the building and stood outside. We all waited patiently for the fire patrol to walk over from the fire station right next door. Most people were dressed up fairly decently for the play because we dont get a reason to dress up very often. So here are all these people standing outside in decent clothes (the definition of dressing up here is much different than anywhere else) with their mud boots on. Now, if you are a woman, it is fashionable to have brightly colored mud boots with a fun pattern. I saw a few friends standing next to each other with their cute mud boots on and I felt out of fashion because I didnt have mine on. I think that fire alarm was the most exciting thing to happen around Bethel all year! :)
I'm a high school science teacher currently living my dream of teaching out in bush Alaska. I'm always up for new adventures and like to travel anywhere and everywhere. This blog is a way to keep in touch with friends and family, journal about life, and share my experiences with the world.
