Now we were ready to load the two
boats for the trip to Narsaq. All the adventurers are in this
picture, except our leader (and photographer Mark Cole). From
left to right: Don Yonika, Herb Yeates (waving), Storm Johnson,
me in front smiling, Howie Green behind me and Lee McIlvaine
on the right. In the boat was our Greenlandic guide and partner
Peter Lindberg who met us at the airport. I was able to greet
him and have a short conversation in Danish when we first met.
Peter speaks both Western Greenlandic and Danish, the two main
languages of Greenland. I learned some Danish just for the trip.
Another important thing I did was to get in shape and do a lot
of weight lifting.
Note the small iceberg in the water
behind Peter's boat.
