Yes, his English is a little broken. But it is WAY better than my Greenlandic so I’ll think we’ll just stick to my native tongue for our correspondence. I’m very encouraged that he offered some other outlets I can pursue to get my butt to Greenland. (I wonder what kind of shoes I should pack. Uggs make me look fat.) But I also really just want to get some Greenlanders reading ODNT. And I’m thinking I should write him back to clarify.
