Alaskan men: the man is back
I’ve just arrived at home after my holidays break. I spent a week on a cruise enjoying of beautiful weather and a lot of wilderness. Glaciers, orcas, icebergs, bears, all of them fascinating but one animal specie called my attention: the Alaskan-easygoing-all-day-at-the-bar man.
I don’t mean all men are the same there, of course, but there I could find that type of man that people usually think is coming from Southern latitudes: sleeping eyes, a two days’ growth of stubble, drinking a glass of beer with his back on the bar… just watching people. I have to say that one characteristic is native: to proudly show off their tattoos at the same time they make their earrings bright with an imperceptible movement of their head. Sometimes you barely can distinguish between a brown bear from this men not only for the smell but for the huge size they use.
Some people advised me about this specie. They were supposed to be found in Seattle but I can affirm that rarely can be seen here: almost all of them migrate to Alaska looking for new fur trades, I guess. A good flock of them can be seen nearby the Juneau’s Red Dog Saloon.
Just fun ;-)
