Viewing Post for: Greenland by Day Hike

Date: Sunday, August 28
Location: QAGSSIARSSUK again

Lovely, quiet morning with our coffee overlooking our beautiful fjord. Then we went to explore the 1000 year old ruins of Eric the Red. A great long house has been reconstructed with replicas of the viking days. His wife's tiny church also has been reconstructed.

This is the junction of the west and the east. Here a thousand years ago the Inuit who migrated across the Bering Straits met Europeans. A lovely Greenlandic woman who married a Dane who spent a year as a student in Penfield gave us the tour.

Then we got to the store only open 2 hours per day. We got whale blubber, reindeer, lamb and musk ox for dinner. Very Greenlandic. There were a few faces trying the musk ox and matak (whale blubber).

Afternoon was spent hiking over the mountains behind us. Amazing hike to overlook the next ice filled fjord. A beautiful, peace-filled day.

...this is further to Karen's note - Paul and I will be going out to East Henrietta for lunch on Tuesday to the same place Steve took him last week. Tomorrow, however, is a return to Rocky's for eggplant. I saw David Fetler in FedEx tonight at Twelve Corners - he didn't acknowledge me at all which is not surprising. All this to say, business as usual and we're looking forward to your return and your jubilation over these last 2 1/1 weeks. A very special thanks to William for accompanying Mom
