The sign on this building says “Kangerlussuaq International Science Support” a.k.a. KISS. It is run by VECO, a company based in Boulder, CO that takes care of the logistics needs of polar scientists. This was our hotel for 3 nights while we waited for our flight to northern Greenland. As you can see, the weather was very nice, with highs in the 50’s (Fahrenheit) and nearly 24 hours of sunshine. These buildings are typical of many that you see in the arctic: functional and rectangular. Actually, there are much cuter Scandanavian-style homes in many Greenland villages.
