Q. What countries border on the east and west of Alaska? Jenna
A. Good. An easy question. At least I think I know. On our east is Canada. I know that well because you have to drive thru Canada to get to the lower 48 (or ‘Outside’ as we Alaskans call it.) We’ve done it many times.
On our west is Russia, from whom we bought Alaska in 1867. You can read more about this thru out my archives, under the title of History.
You didn’t ask what was north or south of us, but let’s see….north would be frozen tundra, polar bears, eskimos and if you flew on over the top of the world, you’d find yourself in Norway and Finland! A glass of glogg anyone?
If you travel straight south from Alaska, you will find yourself in the south pacific ocean and the french polynesian islands. There’s is not much south of us before reaching the south pole, but you could have a fine time working on your tan. Write me again! -BJ
