What's better than being cool? Ice cold



Continuing my quest to put up my life online, here's photos from my trip to Iceland back in 2000. Icelandair had nice deals for Boston-London flights, and it was a nice layover. Iceland is like bizarro world - it looks like the moon, and it's dotted with active volcanoes and geysers ("geyser" is one of the few words that I can think of that English borrows from Icelandic - "saga" is the only other one that comes to mind). But nary a tree - the soil's too volcanic. On the tour, they showed us the first few trees ever grown in Iceland, and it was quite funny how trees were considered a sight to behold.
