The first night in a real bed after days without it, is always amazing and as we woke up this morning we both agreed that this time around was as good as ever.
We also did some basic shopping before walking across the street to meet Hans the hotel owner, who also owns the ultima thule store, selling what is supposed to be some of the finest handicraft in Greenland, Not much to see though.
There was a few interesting pieces and the quality of the handicraft was indeed very high, just nothing we really wanted or needed. We walked by the real hostel and dropped off a back of dirty laundry with the owner’s wife, she told us to collect it when we would stop by for the “kaffemik” later that day.
We greeted her with a small present and sampled a little of the food and cake before collecting our now freshly washed laundry and walking our merry way home.
We entered what was clearly the home of a successful and very Christian couple. The home was well build and well maintained, pretty much every wall was decorated with Christian pictures or paintings along with numerous pictures of relatives and children and grand children.
We spent a couple of relaxing and very pleasing hours in their company before heading back home. A wonderful and kind couple, before we left we exchanged emails with tukummeq to be able to stay in touch.
Just before midnight, as we finalized packing up our bags for the flight home the following evening, we set out on our last night time walk, we walked on and along the ice, taking in the stunningly beautiful arctic light and securing the last couple of meaningful images from this visit to the far north.
After a bone chilling, but very beautiful two hour walk, we arrived back at our room and headed straight for bed.
