Greenland

My first stop was Greenland! i was very excited to get to come here. I had a great time. The capital of Greenland is Nuuk. The weather was very cold there and has a lot of iceburgs and ice flows. Their official language there is Greenlandic and their ethnic groups are 88% Inuit and 12% Europeans (mostly danish). The population is 57,564 and the GDP per capita is $20,000. The total area is 2,166,086km and 83.1% of it is water. The atlantic ocean borders the southeast of Greenland, The Greenland sea is east, the artic ocean is north, and Baffin bay is west. Greenland contains the worlds largest national park and worlds largest island. The sight that was cool to see was the Ilulissat Icefjord. It is one of the few glaciers through which the ice cap reahes the sea. It's assumed great importance to increasing concerns around the climate change. It's located on the west coast. That was my trip to Greenland! It was cold but very pretty.
