Welcome to Wales: population 151
Friday, March 09, 2007
If you thought the Rhondda was the end of the earth, then you've never visited Wales.
That's Wales on the western tip of the Seward Peninsula, 111 miles northwest of Nome, Alaska.
It's a small community of just 151 people with a strong Eskimo heritage. According to the Anchorage Daily News, "the economy is based on subsistence hunting and fishing, trapping, Native arts and crafts and some mining."
Perhaps we've more in common than you'd think.
