Flight over the Inlandsis


Entering the Inlandsis

After looking for a sailing, fishing, or cargo boat in Narsaq, Sisimiut, and Nuuk, I decided to give up on the idea of finding a boat to go further west. Maybe some sailing yachts will come up later this August from US. Some trawlers from New Foundland should also go back from Nuuk to St-John at the end of their fishing season in October. But two or three more months in Greenland felt a bit long.

So I decided to cheat a little and take a plane to Reykjavik. The flight over the ice sheet was really beautiful, and hitch-hiking from Keflavik to the capital was easy, thanks to a friendly couple of Swiss visitors. There is still no darkness at night here, but I was surprised to see so many people in the streets, so many cars — and big ones — around, and even a few trees in the street!

Thanks to my friend Andie who now leaves in Reykjavik, I am now in a wonderful wooden house in downtown Reykjavik.
