I am now going to Arizona. There is a tribe of Indians there that hold the genetic marker in their DNA. I am thrilled that I will be able to leave this harsh, cold climate for much warmer and pleasant weather. Spencer Wells believed that our ancestors crossed the Bering Strait on a land bridge thousands of years ago to enter Alaska and travel down into North and South America. I embark via airplane and spend $467.94. I spend $1058 on a hotel and get complementary car service. It is wonderful to be back in the United States. I am glad to be back in my home country after over a month. This land has many mountains and valleys. This place is warm but at least it is a dry heat and I am surprisingly comfortable. I meet the Indians and tell them of my journey and belief that our ancestors crossed the Bering Strait all those years ago to enter the Americas. They belong to Haplogroup C. The Indians firmly believe in their creation stories however and I am impressed of how strongly they still believe in their culture. I show them pictures of all of the people that I have met and how different people in different parts of the world look somewhat similar. Although the Indians act American in most respects, they still hold onto their Native American culture. They show me some of their culture. We dance to their traditional music and feast on some meat and corn. It is delicious but I must leave for home!

I have now traveled the world and met many interesting people. I understand the journey that my ancestors took all those years ago. Right now, I am anxious to return home after over forty days.
