Ty, originally uploaded by Snakelover61.

While sitting in a city park in Anchorage, Alaska eating some funnel cakes, my kids and I met Ty. Ty is a Yup'ik Eskimo. He was a friendly and interesting fellow, but I think he has a bit of an alcohol problem. He kept repeating himself and drooling just a little. He told us of his island, Nunivak, and that he played football and basketball when he was younger. He seemed very pleased when I asked him if I could take his picture. For some reason, it pleases me too. Here's to you, Ty. Hope you're doing well.
