Ammassalik / Tasiilaq Houses - East Greenland<br />, greenland, travel

The lack of fences and gardens certainly makes for better looking towns and makes the houses look like they compliment with the landscape far more than where the landscape becomes a poor second to endless concrete and tarmac. I'm not sure if there's any rule about what colour you can paint your house, they all seemed to be bright red, blue, green or yellow with very few that fell out of this palette. Red houses are more prevalent (just not so much in this picture) and most municipal buildings seem to be red too.
