A girl from Åland Islands
This sweet nurse, I met in Nuuk, Greenland when we worked together at Dronning Ingrids Hospital. She comes from Åland Islands, Finland. I never heard about this island before till I met her. Åland Islands belong to Finland, speak Swedish, but have their own parliament, similar to Greenland. Now, she is back and lives in Mariehamn, the capital city of Åland Islands. It’s often referred to as the ‘city of a thousand linden trees’. Hope I can visit this beautiful city one day.
This photoshoot was taken in the old colonial harbor in Nuuk. It was very cold that day – ca. minus 17. We could do this photoshoot only 15 minutes with some breaks in between 😀 ha ha Madeleine could not take it anymore. But I must say, she was very strong, could hold it for 7 minutes without jacket on 🙂
