Thank you for your kind words. So far, we are enjoying the trip very much! And I hope I did not offended anyone if sometimes I am amazed by some things that I see here and I point them out. I do that only from the story point of view (an European traveling in the New World). I am not making any judgements, just recording and enjoying the wonderful things that this continent has to offer.
@GoDoMore: as for getting 7 months off work... I was persistent I guess but also very lucky. I work for a big American corporation and they have this policy of taking a "sabatical year". The thing is, back home, nobody took it so it was a little tricky to convince them they should allow me to go. In the end... I am in Alaska, writing to you guys. So it ended up fine :)
