If you haven't read Part 1, go ahead, I'll wait...
There's a tradition in Greenland called kaffimik - whenever you have something to celebrate, you put flags outside your house to signal that there's a kaffimik at your house, and anyone passing is welcomed in for coffee and cake. It's a communal celebration that's perfectly suited to the typically small settlements of Greenland.
To continue the National Day celebrations, the Nuuk administration had arranged a giant kaffimik for the whole city. This was going to be outside in the street, but although they set up the tables first thing in the morning, the rain won out and the whole affair was moved indoors, into a giant sports hall.
Despite the huge numbers of coffee pots, it was hard to find one that wasn't empty! However, with Andy's hawk-eyes looking out for refills, we did eventually manage to score our free cuppa, and a slice of Greenlandic cake (which is where I got the idea to make my own).
Most of the day's celebratory activities were also moved inside the hall. One of the things I'd been looking forwards to the most was the "Greenlandic polka" demonstration - a bouncy style of dancing which turned out to have a lot in common with various European folk and circle dances. It was fun to watch and challenging to photograph!
You may have gathered that Nuuk wasn't my favourite place in Greenland, but they certainly put on a good display in honour of Greenland's semi-independence day, and we were glad we'd arranged our trip around this date.
