Ittoqqortoormiit Greenland, 2007

The only major human settlement on the east coast of Greenland, it doesn't get a whole lot of visitors: access from landside would require a trek over the icecap and the ocean route is blocked by ice for much of the year.

From a distance it is quite pretty, with all of the brightly colored houses, however, when you get closer you realize just how poor it is.

Amazing views though.

Also see Greenland.
