    • Sure, James. We were in Mongolia on two-year contracts with the International School of Ulaanbaatar. Those contracts expired in May, 2016. Although we enjoyed our time in Mongolia, rather than renew our contracts we were eager to return to Alaska – fresh air, fresh fish, village life. At this point I (Jack) opted to transition out of teaching into full-time photography and writing. Meanwhile, Barbra accepted a position with Lake and Peninsula School District in Southwest Alaska. After spending the summer of 2016 making a leisurely, winding 7,100 mile drive in our truck camper from Sacramento, California to Anchorage, we boarded a small bush plane for Chignik Lake where we now live. Barbra teaches the village’s five elementary school students. I’ve been working on a project to document the area’s wild birds. We both continue to cook, bake, fish, write and read. This summer we’re planning to do a bicycle camping tour of Hokkaido, Japan’s northernmost island. Be sure to see the article “Imagine a Place” to get a sense of life here on The Lake.
