At the end of the trip around
town there was time for a drink on the terrace of the Uummannaq
Hotel, with large glass barriers to any breeze it was a real
sun-trap and a nearby thermometer said it was +24C in the sun. A
fantastic view of the harbour and fjord and glacier ice in the
drinks that cracked and popped most satisfactorily. At $5 for a Coke
though made it was the only choice rather than the budget choice.
Uummannaq is famous as
Greenland's sunniest spot, being also one of the driest places,
I could live with this.
