yes of course its chilly in iceland–but according to the locals, global warming is taking care of that problem. So were getting to witness some of the beauty in sunshine and 50 degree weather.
more importantly, its is indeed expensive. witness below. 1 bowl of lamb soup that cost about $15. we had been surviving on fish jerky and our left-over bulk food from the road trip, having hunger pains, and it looked so good, so we split a bowl.
Meanwhile, heres a movie of a giant waterfall, and a geyer exploding–its located a few yards from the original “geysir” –the one which all geyers were named after:
gulfoss and geyser.mov
weve also been checking out the Reykjavik film festival, and soaking in some of the countrys 10 zillion thermal baths…tough life right? Im interviewing folks for a story about a controversial dam that was just built in the east part of the country–ill post some links when the story is done. Much love to my NYC people–it was great to see you and be home.
Were headed out for amsterdam on Monday…see you all there..
