I was a fisherman for 3 years on a fishing ship.
I worked for 3-4 months at a time.
The shore was a rare sight for me,
but so was the sky.
In the matter of 4 months,
I lifted more than 2000 tonnes of frozen fish
in a -38 C storage freezer.
I worked with a fisherman
crowned 'Kunuussuaq' (Big Knut).
He had been there for 16 years.
We shared no interests and
couldn't have been
from each other.
But our differences meant nothing to our friendship -
Working day and night shook us together.
We went on to create many priceless memories,
filled with fish, hard work, and laughter.
And luckily, he wasn't my only new friend.
