I have been surfing the net about Greenland, and I found a really fascinating country with a kind of beauty that surpasses my best dreams. Tasiilaq is one of these most incredible places,as far as I got to know: the multicoloured town sloping down to the fjord, the mountains around and glaciers feeding the ocean with icebergs, the sledges, the musk oxen, a whole scenary of magic for me...I really would like to visit Tasiilaq; I understand the town can satisfy most of the basic needs, as there are frequent flights and regular ship arrivals. So congratulations, I think you can be proud of your town, and the remaining isolation will be of less importance as the world gets to know Greenland better.
