Today was no exception to the rule of depressing weather the gods seem to have imposed on Nuuk-- heavy grey skies with sporadic bouts of snow/icy rain, maybe a few degrees above freezing. After attempting to go to a yoga class (yes--there is yoga here!) and being denied entrance for being 30 seconds late (really), I walked down toward the hospital and spotted an iceberg that quickly became the object of my affection.
Wondering how icebergs can be so blue? This guy certainly seems to have it figured out. I'll stick with the fact that here, they mostly come from chunks of calved glacier ice, which is often blue due to various principles you probably learned about in high school physics.
