Ikateq - Houses - East Greenland<br />, greenland, travel

Part of the abandoned village of Ikateq seen from the sea on arrival, some buildings were weather damaged and uninhabitable whereas others were still used as shelters by people for a few days or more. It had a very bleak and exposed air about it, not somewhere you choose to live and entirely understandable that the people would choose to leave as there are better places to go.
