Day 9, Monday, August 12, 2013
Sisimiut is a charming Greenlandic community on the west coast of the Danish country.  I wish that I could send photos of the deeply cut and mountainous fjord that lead us into the Greenlandic community of Sisimiut.  However before I even attempt to describe the community, you would have marveled at the Greenlander kayaker demonstration of “Eskimo Rolling” by one of the former champions of the Greenland Kayaking Championships!  Our own kayak guide from the IOFFE joined in the show with his specialty “rolls” along side of his comrade from Sisimiut!  Museums, Art Gallery, and unique shops dotted the steep cliff sides.  Passengers enjoyed a day hiking, discovering, and yes, even shopping in this remote and very quaint village of Sisimiut, Greenland.
