You can say many things about Greenland, but one thing is for sure, that Greenland is actual green in the summertime. The summer, or the short time there is between two very cold winters, is a palette of colors, and different vegetation. Everything is in a hurry to get up, become something, before the cold period, puts an end to the growth. The sun and thereby the light returns from southerly hemisphere at the 22 of February.

It was a day of celebration we stood there, on the highest mountain in the area, looking out over the scenarios southerly horizon, to get the first glimpse, a very short one, of the sun. It only stays for around 20 minutes then the sun was away again, a sunrise, and a sunset within the same hour. The temperature was around -43° Celsius. From that day it all happened.

The day incline approx. 20 minutes every day! And forward to the 27 of April, it is more or less a normal day, and then, the long day takes over, where th ere is no dark at all. Around the 23 of June the sun is right over our heads, all 24 hours, and the biggest problem we had, was to get some sleep. Fortunately there was a co uple of black roller curtains in front of my two small win dows, there was in my room.
