Iceland Again 2

I found an October 10 article on Iceland from the Wall Street Journal. The Icelanders interviewed sounded pretty philosophic.

They were saying things like, "Well, time to get back to cod fishing," or "We had a hell of a party. No wonder we have a hangover now."

Maybe they are screaming and bashing their heads against walls in private.

I need to get up there and spend some foreign currency. The websites for Icelandic bookstores were simply not as good as the stores themselves. I couldn't even find the children's fairy tale my father used to read to me, translating from Icelandic as he went. It's still popular and available in several languages. I bought a copy when I was in Iceland four years ago.
