Pic of the Day
Had the opportunity to spend the day with Inger and Flemming, a twenty-something couple from Ilulissat this week. As recently as last winter, I wasn't even sure if anyone (other than some United States Airforce personnel) lived in Greenland. What I now know is that there are roughly 55,000 inhabitants, about 35,000 of which are Inuit, (Inger being Inuit, and Flemming being a Danish immigrant). It was fascinating to learn a bit about Inuit culture, and life in a town that sees months of solid icepack covering Disko Bay in winter, 24 hour sunshine for a couple months during the summer, and where dogsleds outnumber automobiles.
