October has come with the snow and frost in Qeqertarsuaq.
It feels like the air is getting cleaner and fresher when the temperature drops.

The black beach is becoming white and the colors on the houses appear more clearly.

I work here with young children who have now begun to humble Christmas songs as the snow has arrived :-) I love this time of year when nature is brightening up and it hasn´t got too cold yet.

The cars can also feel the cold and are being set to power at night so the oil does not freeze. Some mornings can the cars still not start because some puppies have played with the wire :-)

I was told they don´t do ice skating here but this picture reminds me of good times as a child.
