First off, Iqaluit has 3 banks. 3! We don't have any, so if we want to do anything with our money, it has to be online or face horrible charges at the ATM or through the Northern when they cash a cheque. I happened to have some errands that needed to be done at the RBC, so it was pretty exciting to know that there was one in Iqaluit! Even though there was a long line and I had to wait behind the slowest person in the world, it was still nice to be able to go to the bank when I needed to. Unfortunately while I was there, Jeff called and said that we had more cheques that needed to be deposited, boo! I may have to mail them home and have someone else deposit them for us since I don't have another trip anytime soon.
Iqaluit may have felt more similar to home with its amenities and good food (and boy, was there good food - I gained 2 pounds in 5 days!! Eek!!), I couldn't have been more happy to get home to Baker Lake. How could I not when this adorable face was waiting for me? :)
