We Just Saw The Biggest Iceberg We Have Seen. Then We Met Another Journalist In The Middle Of The Ocean With Only 271 Miles To Tasiilaq.

Hi this is Ralph. We are 271 miles south of Tasiilaq which is also known as Ammassalik, our last stop in Greenland. We are heading up the coast. The weather has been pretty good today. It has rained quite a bit, but we have had some real calm seas. We made some good time.
We have just passed the largest iceberg I have ever seen! Now I have only seen a bunch of them for about 2 weeks. It was the largest one I have ever seen!
All is going well. We passed a vessel today coming south from Germany going to the United States. Were coming from the United States going to Germany! We stopped and talked to each other for a few minutes. He also turned out to be a journalist. What are the odds of that? Unbelievable! He is sending word ahead to Germany that we are coming!
You have a great day.
God Bless you. We will talk to you tomorrow.
