March and April

By now, we are enjoying arctic spring with long days and bright nights, a lot of sunshine and warmer temperatures. Finally, I am ready to share a few pictures taken during the last two months.

On a foggy day in the end of april, 9 dog-teams (approximately 100 dogs) and 22 people were meeting up at Kap Swainson.

7 of those dog teams came there with kids from the Umimmar Club (Ittoqqortoormiit`s youth club), and after having lunch at the cabin, they climbed up the hill and had a lot of fun sliding down :-).

A few days later, Ingkasi got another Polar Bear, close to Kap Tobin.

It was a big one! – By now, there are just 3 bears left to be shot this year.

Last Sunday at 10 am, this years dogsled-race was taking place.

I had to work at the church. Only 2 dog teams participated.
