East Greenland

Met a good man named Hans Ulriksen, who carves things, bones, tusks, antlers, at his shop in Tasiilaq, east Greenland. Hans had us to his house, an honor to meet his family. This, on his front porch, he says is a polar bear bone, the humerus, which is the bone between the shoulder and the elbow. A friend brought it to him. It’s not every day.

The fabulous weather continued for another day. This is Tasiilaq town from the little stream up by the town cemetery. So green you wouldn’t think it’s Greenland.

And the area from the air. Just a really, deeply beautiful bit of the earth:

We’ll get these up on EarthPhotos.com when we get back home so that they’ll be enlargable. Hope you enjoy them for now.
