Ketchikan Alaska

Ketchikan is one of the rainiest places in the world, and a crew member said it is only the second time this season that they have arrived here when it hasn't been raining, and this is the last cruise of the year!
They get over 13 feet of rain each year, but none yet today.
The cruise ship is the biggest thing in the city, and with 13,000 inhabitants, it is the sixth largest city in Alaska.
Walked along the old red light district, seen some massive salmon spawning and saw a bald eagle sitting on a post.
Been on a bus trip where one of the highlights was the driver pointing out where he lived with his mum and dad. But then again, there aren't that many things, apart from the scenery and wildlife to point out when you have to talk for a whole hour.
