Sisimiut

I went on a hike to see more Viking ruins — as at Narsaq, much deteriorated — and in the process got a further look at the thick grass that grows in meadows during the summer. I also visited the Blue Bethel Church featured on the stamp shown above. One corner of the church has required additional support recently because of settling of the building's foundation due to permafrost melting.
