Icelandic Experience

The plane smelled of fish. The signs are all in English, or bilingual. Yes, Reykjavik is dark, cold, drizzling, and very windy--- so windy that the first person out the airport lobby door bellowed, "HOLY COW!" The streets are sparkly with salt pellets. The restaurant offered "Mexicana" pizza (which I doubt any Mexican would recognize). Many immigrants from southeast Asia, and I found a Russian note in the gutter. More anon.
