  • 11:00 – 1st expedition in 2nd group
  • – wet landing @ Margeriedal
  • – nice walk up steep hill w/grand view

  • 1:00 – lunch – Indian – cooked by French & Phillipino’s so not very authentic
  • 2:00 – open bridge policy – get to go up & check out the captain’s domain

What I DON’T LIKE

  •  no satellite coverage & internet

FUN-fact – Greenland is the largest island in the world and 80% is covered in ice. 80% of the island is within the Arctic Circle. You think there’s a pattern here?
