It's been a bit strange following all the media frenzy around the Eyjafjallajökull glacier eruption during the last few weeks. Surely the people living closest to the glacier have been hit rather hard by ash falling on their farmland. Together we will hopefully overcome the damage that has been done.
Otherwise the country is totally undisturbed by the eruption (problems with flights to and from the country, true). We go on with our lives as if nothing had happened, as a matter of fact there are much bigger concerns to deal with: the results of the abominable outcome of the capitalist experiment which has ruined our economy, during the last two decades.
I live about 80 km from the eruption and the only concern I have is, whether I can see the eruption.
I took this photo while the eruption was still quite powerful.
This one I took a week ago with the cathedral of Skálholt in the foreground.
What is hurting the country, as a result of this eruption, is mainly hysteria, stirred up by the media. We are allright and whoever comes here is welcome to enjoy the wonders of our country.
