Holiday :-)

We had a day off from school today ... Nice to be able to relax in the morning ... In the afternoon I sailed out on the fjord ... A wonderful weather ... calm ... and an incredibly beautiful Ammassalik Fjord...
I sailed into the inlet side to look for seals on the winter ice .. They usually suns them selves on the ice in the sunshine....I met Andreas who was in search of seals ... We saw a seal, but was disturbed by helicopter ... rich tourists helliskiing ...
Andreas is a nice old sealer ... Now he serves no money, because of some sick people's attitude to seal hunting ... Yes poverty is spreading in our village ...

Time for a cup of coffee ...


Ikaasaq as a mirror in the spring sunshine....



Mikkel was lucky he shot a seal ... the seal is on the sledge

I like best the one with Mikkel! Beautiful!

I read about the EU measures against seal hunting. They really don´t understand anything about local traditions, and they don´t care wether they are killing instead human beings who based their lives on seal skin trade. It's stupid how some people are hypersensitive to some human rights and just can´t see blood, and then no sensitive at all to the misery and unhappyness they cause.

I am against bullfighting, totally against to-death bullfighting - it's a GAME for sick people; but THAT is allowed. When animal killing is in harmony with nature, and just enough to provide means of living - that´s forbidden. Crazy world..

Good sunday,
