Qaqortoq Harbour

Is this a town in northern Canada? The people appear similar, in that many of them share a common heritage, tracing back to Mongolia long before European influence. Qaqortoq is the 4th largest town in Greenland, located in the far south. It has a population of just under 3,200. The reason for this image being in my Europe Gallery is that it has strong ties to Denmark which provides investment, and is Greenland's primary trading partner. Fishing and furs are major components of its economy, and tourism is growing, confined only by the lack of a fixed-wing airport. Currently it is served by ferry and helicopter. The red-roofed boat at the dock is a cruise ship's tender, bringing passengers ashore. They will sleep on their ship, which brings no revenue to the hotel. By world standards, this is a prosperous town. Canada could learn from Denmark.
