Running with the Reindeer

This great Fur Rondy event is Alaska's answer to the Running of the Bulls in Pamplona, only it's a lot more stupid! All the locals dressed up in ridiculous and skimpy costumes as they hustled their goose-bumped flesh down fourth avenue.

We were too chicken to remove our parkas in the -10 degree chill, but I tied a South African flag around me like a cape.

Unfortunately I had a twisted ankle, so our run with the reindeer was more of a hobble with lots of squealing as the reindeer raced by.
