Ahoy there, mateys!

For our first voyage, the Captain and I have decided to go to Greenland. Specifically, Disko Bay. Jane's even applying to the University to do Sprog Studies. So it makes sense that we visit. Greenland is hilarious. It's got 55,000 inhabitants, most of them are males age 15-64 and only half the population has a phone. More have the internet than have a phone. So we'll get some more crew members there. Except they may be reluctant what with half the original settlers being killed by English pirates. And Inuits.

But I'm thinking the Greenlanders will let bygones be bygones piratewise.

There are 9 hotels in the entire country. There is one university. With 114 pupils and 21 staff. Currently, the midnight sun is out. This means when we go we'll see children rollerskating in the middle of the night with the sun on their faces, people sitting on rocks here and there enjoying the never-ending sunlight and small boats chugging out into the harbour.

The town we're going to is Qasigiannguit, which translates as 'small, multi-coloured seals' and is in Disko Bay.

Also they have this:

The SIRIUS Patrol (Danish: Slædepatruljen SIRIUS) is a Danish military dog sled patrol in Greenland.

And their coat of arms is an angry polar bear

Who's with me?
