Greenland part one


We are now in Uummannaq, a beautiful town in the Umanak Fjord. Yesterday we went to the Icecap ( 60 km east ), and according to Ole Jorgen we were the first people ever that could reach it with a boat within a distance of 200 mtrs in mid October......... As we returned in the small boats the sun went down and the water instantly start to freese. Both OJ and I had problems with our eyes because of the sudden drop of temperature and the strong wind. The ice got thicker and I never knew that a small boat of fiberglass also could be used as an icebreaker.
The icebergs are more than beautiful around here and some of them are shaped for our project. It looks very good!
The support for our project is unimaginable. We started our trip to Greenland in Nuuk were we had a meeting with the chairman of the parliament, people from nature and environment etc. etc. All are ethusiastic it. We even met the deputy major of Ilullisat ( also Uummannaq ) during our flights upnorth and he also signed our letter of support.

The weather starts to get bad for the coming next days, so now we leave for a trip upnorth. We search in the area of Satut ( a small settlement ) for icebergs, as we can' t make it today to the Sermeq glacier.

Keep in contact,
