A trip to the hospitable Greenland: a quiz

“Suddenly a whole new world of land and sea rises

to meet me as I cross the ridge.

Greenland! oh god, how beautiful the world can be.”

  1. Got 7 out of 8. Not bad from an old gal like me (who got a little help from Wikipedia). The one thing I was definitely sure of is the population of Greenland: the Inuit as there are Inuits also in northern Canada. Beautiful pictures. Makes me want to get over my fear of flying and going there to visit in the winter time as I am an ice and snow person rather than a summer and blooming person.
