    8/24 Day 1. Flight leaving Copenhagen, took 4 hours to connect at Kangerlussuaq on the west side of Greenland and flew another 45 min to Ilulissat. Kangerlussuag airport has 2 gates only. Wine at the Duty Free store would save you at least 30% than the local stores. High in 54F, Low in 35F.

    8/24 Day 1 afternoon. Arrived in the afternoon. Rented a house from Airbnb. It turned out to be a great choice because it's among the local residences with great views. Went grocery shopping. With population of 4000+, Ilulissat has a school, two museums, a sports facility with even badminton courts. The outdoor soccer field is where local boys love to hang out. Recycling is pretty serious in this little town.Read more

    8/24 Evening. After shopping and quick tour of the town, we had dinner with frozen food and some vegetable with congee. It was too late to get fresh fish from the fishing boats. Since the sun is still up, we decided to hike on the short Yellow Trail which is about 2.6 km. Spectacular view along the way. Ilulissat Icefjord is UNESCO World Heritage Site. The orange poles on top of the hills carris UNESCO cairn. Just got off the track before sunset at about 11pm.Read more

    8/26 Hiking the Blue Trail today. 6.9 km took us about 6 hours with a 6 yr old. One side of the trail is a UNESCO World Heritage site. The trail started with an easy decked path for about 1 km. Both of the trail head and tail were surrounded by the dog park. Greenlandic sledge dogs were chained here for the whole summer. The breed is half wolf half dog so they howl most of the time. It's prohibited to approach and pat the dog. They could break loose the chain and attack people. There are thousands of such dog in this area. After the hike, we had the best sashimi ever, with noodle soup made with fish bone and head. Then we had second round of dinner an hour later for seared Halibut fillet. Yum.....Read more

    8/27 Raining. Everything is foggy so we decided to walk around the town and check out their museums and shops. Ilulissat museum was informative about the history, the people, the dogs, and some art work. The arts museum is smaller that has mostly local artists' work. After couple hours of walking in the rain and brainstorming the town, we chose HongKong Cafe as THE restaurant to try. Boy how disappointing we were. We end up getting 4 bowl of Ramon noodles costing about $8 each. So, we had to make it up at dinner time. Atlantic Redfish was the main dish. Battered with bread crumb and fry it to crispy. Still so tender and juicy inside. A house with no TV, no clock and no WIFI, we had a great time playing poke and sharing jokes.Read more
