DAY 4: Iceberg!

After the show, we took a boat back to the airport. It was because "we were behind schedule and this would save time," but I got the guide to admit that that wasn't the whole truth.

The $25 ticket went mostly to the fishermen, as a way for them to earn a wage (and also to avoid begging). The money was worth it... as you can see we got really close to an iceberg. Close enough that we could see how true that "top of the iceberg" saying is... the ice was a teal blue in the clear water. True beauty.

Our day in Greenland was at an end... we took the plane back, eventually got a taxi (surprisingly, the taxi drivers don't speak English as well as everyone else we met!) back to the hotel.

For dinner, we had a traditional Icelandic treat... a hot dog! At a place called Texas Grill (that's right, leaving NJ and we still find a Texas Weiners!)... their version is called "Pylsa." A hot dog on a steamed bun topped with ketchup, mustard, crunchy fried onions, raw onions and a remoulade. It's the cheapest meal of the week... about $6 for a hot dog and soda. For dessert, we had a rolled crepe with cinammon sugar. YUMMY!

End Day 4 (yes I know I screwed up... Day 3 is coming)
