I miss this house! There are steps everywhere on the island of Uummannaq (and Greenland in general). Everything is built on the rocks. The steps were our early warning system for guests, but more importantly, we got a few seconds warning when the guys came to collect the toilet bucket. As soon as you heard the first rumble on the steps… well, you can imagine.
The toilet crew had a key to every house in the village, and they let themselves in. It’s one of those awkward dilemmas. You don’t want to be disturbed, but you really want them to take the bucket – can’t leave it outside as it will freeze!
Anyway, you’ve got the picture now. Thankfully, I don’t have the photo of when I was cutting my hair (naked) in the bathroom when the toilet crew arrived. They had a new member of the team – lighter, no rumble on the steps. And then… Surprise! 🙂
