Mumbles … Theory

It came to my attention recently that a lot of bloggers have something in common… no views from Greenland.  I am ecstatic over all the overseas views I have gotten, but Greenland is such a big country I want to have it light up pretty colors on my map.

I honestly don’t know much about Greenland.  According to Google it is populated, but not by many (56,171) compared to its mass (836,300 square miles).  The little town I live in is a higher population than that and I am in the middle of Iowa with the farm fields everywhere.

I did learn that most of that population is along coastlines, but with the nation being mostly ice I am sure they are not the tropical coastlines many dream about.  Lots of beautiful pictures of the nation on Google as well.  I found this one of some green land around the houses.

I know my Grandmother raved about her trip to Alaska… maybe someday I should travel to Greenland to see the Northern Lights.  I do find it interesting how we complain and gripe about the cold and snow and they live surrounded by ice and seem to have a very rich culture.

My theory is this; if I take the time to learn a little about Greenland maybe that country will light up for me.  And if not, I will still be just a little bit wiser about the world.  So, go Google Greenland and marvel at its beauties, you can become wiser too!

  1. Ha love it.. Great minds eh 😉

    Here is another interesting fact. It’s not as big as you might think if you look into maps and how they are representative of the land mass and the difficulties in squeezing round shapes onto a flat surface you’ll see what they did with Greenland it’s quite intriguing
