Four hour flight including passing over Iceland a destination of previous years. Greenland from 30000 ft looks very rugged and totally uninhabitable . Very basic and chaotic airport.

Weather reports are suggesting skies will clear tomorrow night. In the mean time, I have seen quite a few Red Dwarf episodes on DVD. I can't say that I find it terribly amusing at this point, but there is a certain bond I have with ...

Here I am again
