July 11, 2012 Last Day of Field School....Presentations.
Students are spending today working on their presentations. Any "old" work; videos, reports, etc are also being completed and uploaded to the appropriate journal, so look back over the journals to find the new content.
This evening at 7:30pm Greenland time the students will give their presentations on their field school experience. I will post those presentations here as I receive them.

Guess who, it’s me again, Fie Thorup Hansen of Odense, Denmark.
I already told you guys about myself two days ago, so I’ll just give you a short summary. I am 19 years old, I go to school, and I love spending time with friends, family and last but not least my beautiful horse.
Today has been kind of an odd day. All we had to do was finishing off a group presentation, which should be of approximately 20 minutes long, and preferably contain all of our group projects and other experiences.
Our power points were to be presented in the evening for the rest of the groups and some newcomers, e.g. Shelly’s boss, who is really cool, and other scientific persons.
As you may have heard, the water level of Watson River has risen crazily, and today the middle part of the bridge literally was literally flushed away by the water masses. The wild current has not only ruined the bridge, but at the moment it is also a great risk for the water supply of the city because the water pipes run across the river. This insane situation really shows how powerful nature actually is as opposed to how tiny man can seem. The picture shows me on the bridge a week before the water rose.
Since this is the last day of the field school, which is sad, I will write down which words I have learned during this program. American words: Dashy and nifty (gotta love those) and bedrock Greenlandic words: Qujanaq(thank you), asavakkit(I love you) and apa(kiss me)
Peace out, Fie Thorup Hansen
