I'm not going to lie, I had so much fun yesterday that even if it was the cold that caused this sickness, it might have been worth it.
The City is very busy during this celebration. We see visitors from all over Nunavut and the South. The girls and I walked around a bustling Iqaluit for awhile and ended up at the Visitors centre, thawing our toes and enjoying bannock (fried bread, shaped into a ring) before watching dog dash races out on the Bay. Dog dash racing is a race on a defined track where a single sled dog is attached to a skier by a rope. Both are harnessed and the dog runs in front, or is supposed to run in front, of the skier. It was amazing to see how fast they got around the huge track.
