VoM2: Ilulissat, Greenland

Especially for those of you who are sweltering right now, here is the view from my room in Ilulissat, Greenland. It’s raining — of course! — but I have been assured that it will start clearing at midnight. Of course, midnight doesn’t mean a lot here since I am well above the arctic circle — just about even with my previous “furthest north” in Deadhorse, Alaska — and it will be perpetually light for my entire visit.

Also in the “of course” category, I stopped in the local store during my initial recon walk and tried to buy some wine. I was willing to pay the crazy price for a crummy box of wine, but was denied at the cash register. It is apparently some kind of holiday.

The internet is very spotty, but I will try to bring you lots more icebergs, rocks and especially dogs! Stay tuned…
