DAY TEN, LEAVING KANGERLUSSUAQ FOR NARSARSUAQ, JUNE 5/07

Forty-knot winds are still blowing in Iceland but the forecast for tomorrow is better so we are leaving Kangerlussuaq this morning for Narsarsuaq , a two-and-a-half-hour flight south along the coast to the tip of Greenland. This maneuver allows the option tomorrow to try for either Iceland or the Faeroe Islands depending, as always, on the weather.

As in Kangerlussuaq, the airstrip in Narsarsuaq (“the large plain”) was built, almost overnight, by the US military during the Second World War.

(PS. Mariza says that she is disappoint, VERY disappointed, that the alleged squash court in Kangerlussuaq turned out to be…agh!.. a racquetball court! There is no justice...)
