Light air/light breeze Fair weather
66.30034°N -42.96386°W | 2408 m | Distance today: 21km | Total distance: 226km of approx. 600km

Light breeze and sunny weather during our 21 km long "17. mai tog", 17th of May Parade, celebrating the National Day of Norway. We decorated the sledges with Norwegian flags, humming the National anthem of Norway. We had a spectacular dinner tonight, reindeer-meat, mushroom and basmatirice. Mending the broken ski last night looks succesfully, hopefully it will make it through the rest of the trip. Greetings from all of us in Greenland!

To your information, you will find the diary-note from yesterday, Day 10, in between Day 5 and Day 6. Such things happens, now and then, for unknown reasons. There could also be a delay in publishing the daily news, caused by atmospherics, for instance.
