Back from Greenland

this photograph is from the Malmbjerget area in NE-Greenland. Malmbjerget is top right mountain.

we had a great trip and spent 2 days in Akureyri, North Iceland due to delays of the ship we were using. So we studied the local town for one day and the swimming-pool and the next day we rented two cars and drove to Myvatn, Dettifoss, Godafoss, Asbyrgi, Husavik and back again. we had a swim in Grjotagja at Myvatn, which is a very warm (for some people not used to warm water) cave with influx of water from a crack in the earth!

Then we flew in two planes to Constable Pynt in Greenland and all cramped together in one twin otter plane and flew up to Mestersvig, overflying Malmbjerget on the way, which was covered in clouds.

the ship we used as base had anchored up in Mesters Vig and not in Nyhavn, so we had to wait for some hours before it had gotten to the right place, so that we could hoist the helicopter on deck and attach the rotor-blades. in the evening we flew up to Malmbjerget to have a look at all the sites and walk around in the camp...

i will write more later
