First day of school

August 17 – Yesterday a family of five tried to sail from the camp in Hjørnedal back to Ittoqqortormiit but they had to return to Hjørnedal because of big waves that they could not pass. The reason for their departure was that the oldest son had his first school day today. The first day in school is an important day for celebrations all over Greenland, so it was very unfortunate that they could not make it. We decided to celebrate the event in the camp with hot chocolate, cookies and some gifts to the boy who missed the big event in Ittoqqortoormiit. But we did not start home schooling in camp since we expect the family to be able to return home in a few days.
