Those who stay until 06:00, get fresh pastry and coffee served as a pre-breakfast.Ready to start a new day. Today we started at 9.00 with an extra landing at Qulissat. This old mining settlement was abandoned precisely 40 years ago after the mine was closed. Normally we only meet a few people while strolling through the streets, that are persons who are spending their holiday in the settlement. But today we could see numerous little boats in the bay upon arrival. Tomorrow they will memorize the fact that the coal mines were closed. Kuupik Kleist, the Prime Minister of Greenland, born in Qullisat, is one of the
awaited guests, they expect 500-1000 in total! It will be a kind of festival gathering offering theater, music and the possibility to meet old friends.
Around 16.30 the captain announced it was impossible to reach the landing site near glacier Eqip Sermia in time because of the ice, so we went for plan B: Icecruising, what a great alternative. And so we filled some more time of this day with enjoying the ice, the pictures explain the rest.
