Where are the Packice???

Nearly the same view from my house. The one with the packice is from August 2005...The other one is from August 2008....This year we don't have packice.....Some years the Ammassalik Fjord is completly filled up with ice...Is it mother nature playing??? or is it the global-warming caused by the greenhouse effect???

From Kulusuk to Nuuk and Reykjavik

If I will go to Nuuk, our capital. I travel from Kuummiut to Tasiilaq in Bell 212, Air Greenland, Helicopter. Maybe I had to stay overnight in Tasiilaq, then to Kulusuk ( Bell 212 ). From Kulusuk to Nuuk is the air plane a Dash 7 Air Greenland (The red one).
From Kulusuk I can also travel to the capital of Iceland: Reykjavik, with a Fokker aircraft. It's Air Iceland( The white one).


Once a week in summertime, Air Greenland has a flight between Kuummiut and Tasiilaq. So if you want to go to town, is it on Mondays, and you can come back to Kuummiut next Monday, if you want to go by helicopter.
It's Bell 212 also used i Vietnam.
Theese pictures are from Kulusuk
