Supermarkets[edit]

Where should the general info on Supermarkets (see buy) go? It is nice info to know, but it would be terrible to write on each city page. Then again, it doesn't look nice on the country page either.

The country page is a good place for it. Any general information that applies to places throughout the country should be on that page. - Todd VerBeek 21:26, 6 April 2007 (EDT)

Divition of Greenland[edit]

Tourist organisations and officials have different ways of dividing Greenland:

greenland.com[1]: East as usual. South stops between Iviituut and Paamiut. West stops above Sisimiut, and North is from the Disco bay and all the way to Thule.

greenland-guide.gl[2]: East and South as above, West stops above Sisimiut, North is Disco bay and uummannaq bay and then Qaanaaq is a region by itself.

Official divitions [3] (only in inuit and danish):

Old: 18 small spread over the country, one for each of the major cities.

New (from 2009): only 4: South: Stops 'before' Iviituut. West/East: the West coast from the border of region south to Nuuk. Middle: Only Sisimiut and Maniitsoq. North: as greenland.com.

What is the usual way to divide regions? I would say by coherence and possibility of describing the region as a whole insted of having to always say: in the north we have ... and in the south we have...

Therefore I vote for greenland-guide's division. Clcow 14:36, 6 April 2007 (EDT)

The main guideline is to do what makes the most sense for the benefit of the typical traveler. We prefer natural geographic divisions that make it easy to describe each region, rather than official government ones. - Todd VerBeek 21:26, 6 April 2007 (EDT)

Work Section[edit]

It would be nice if we could add something to this section. I wonder how easy or hard it is for a foreigner to find work in Greenland. What kind of jobs are available? English teaching? Daniel32708 04:09, 3 April 2010 (EDT)
