|Icebergs are common year-round in Greenland's fjords.|
|Traditional wooden homes lie in the shadow of new, modern buildings.|

Saddle Mountain in Greenland.
|Summer waterfalls flow from melting winter snow and ice.|

|Just imagine show up to the windows|
of Pauline's house!
Although her home was at the top of a hill, Pauline said snow gets as high as the windows in winter. But she embraced the darkness by appreciating light reflecting on snow, stars shining in the sky, and an outstanding view of the glistening ocean from her window. You can’t get more positive than that!
|We enjoyed an assortment of delicious pastries that Pauline prepared.|
We also enjoyed her stories about living in Greenland.
