ABC Wednesday - N is for Nuuk
Previously on this blog I have brought you to Qaqortoq. Now we journey further North past the icebergs to Greenland's capital Nuuk, once known as Godthåb.
Like anywhere else, when you visit the bank, you tie your dog up outside by the nearest litter bin.
while tourists stare
a dog shadows its master
on main street
on their way home
dashing past dandelions
On one of the hillsides is this sculpture by Aka Høegh.
This is looking down at the Colonial Harbour. On the left is a museum. On the right is the statue of Hans Egede. Between the buildings you can see the queues of cruise passengers waiting to return to the ship.
There is a photograph of some of the souvenir sellers on sithenah and a fuller account of my day in Nuuk with other photographs on my Cruise Journal.
