Today was a travel day. We packed up in Sisimiut, said goodbye and headed south. It took two flights, with a stop in the town of Kangerlussuaq, but we made it back to Nuuk with a blue sky and smooth winds.
Last night I arrived to Sisimiut, a city inside the Arctic Circle. After a clear day in Nuuk that provided a better glimpse of the beautiful capital, a small Air Greenland plane took Hans, Alice, and I (Team post) north.
I woke up this morning to rain and wind still howling. Last night's stormy weather has yet to pass. Today was also the end of Daylight Savings Time in Greenland. Yesterday I was two hours a head of my home (EST). Today I am only one. But I was starting to get used to Icelandic time (four hours ahead). My internal clock is officially confused. Luckily its Sunday, so there were no big plans to attend to.
I am an anthropology professor, writer, researcher and global traveler. This fall, I will be recording a research trip to Greenland as a virtual field trip for my students (and anyone else interested). Join us as we travel to the Arctic and learn about life in the far north.
