Greenland Day 5

Last days for us in Saattut, we hope everybody will have a safe journey back home…

Last night, great party; great food  (narwhal, reindeer, sheep,fish soup and so on !), we sang a very moving Greenlandic song,then we danced, Polish active break in Saattut ! What a nice people ! It was nice to spend time together at school again but the end of our trip is near !

Then back to school again this morning : we had a pasta party and watched the famous dogsled race in Asaat (more than 300 km away, down South, in Disco Bay). Four people are from Saattut and they ran 40 km in the snow. Since three of them won, people went out and yelled. There were fireworks and it is party time again ! The Polish and French students are walking around the village this afternoon, followed by some Greenlandic students. It is about -18 degrees and still sunny ! And here, more than ever, nature is our strength !

We will all meet again on Monday morning, they want to say goodbye at the heliport…

Last article, probably…We will be in Copenhagen on Tuesday night and back in Granville on Wedsesday night…

Hier soir, danses, chant et repas traditionnel ; narval, rennes, agneau, poisson seche, requin cru et cuit…Puis ce midi, repas a l ecole pour assister a la course de chiens de traineau, quatre participants du village et parmi eux, trois gagnants ! 40 km dans la neige…Et victoire fetee par des cris et des feux d artifice ! Bon retour a tous les voyageurs ! Quelle belle semaine !
