Qaqortoq, Greenland

Greenland?  Who goes to Greenland?

We do!

It’s so hard to believe that last week we were baking in the sun on the Island, and today, we’re wearing fleece jackets and it’s 39F!  Welcome to Qaqortoq, Greenland!

So let’s be honest, there’s not a whole heck of a lot to do in Greenland, but the people selling crafts are so kind and the village is beautiful.  They do gorgeous bead work crafts here, there was a beautiful Christmas ornament that I loved.  When I asked the price conversion to US dollars I almost died.  $75 for a beaded ornament.  I know it takes a lot of time to make, but I couldn’t afford that, so just the magnet at this stop.

A very sweet woman who was selling her bead work gave each of the girls a beaded necklace, it was so kind.  She didn’t speak English and I was so grateful, I didn’t know what to say to thank her.  Of course she understood, gratitude needs no words, but still, it was just so tender of her to give them something for free that she had spent time making.

We did a little loop around the village and walked along the dock before getting a tender back to the ship for lunch.  It was a brilliant day.

The tenders go back and forth all day bringing passengers to and from the ship.
