Our Air Iceland plane to Greenland. This is the same type of aircraft that we took from the Westman Islands to Rykjavik.
Leaving Reykjavik behind us for a few days
First glimpse of Greenland
Seeing more land.
Icy sea amonst the beautiful rugged terrain
After we landed at Kulusnk, we went to the top of the mountain near the old US base to get the best views
Greeland -- snow, mountains and the icy sea
Even in mid-July, the sea is nearly covered with icy chunks
The sea is less icy on this side
The view as we walked down from the hotel to the village of Kulusuk
First glimpse of the village
The cemetery with simple crosses and beautiful flowers
Fishing boats at the end of the day
A young boy with a young seal that has just been killed. This will provide food for his family
Village house that are occupied. The population of the village is declining because of lack of employment opportunities.
Inside the village church. Notice the boat which is common in churches.
