A reader emailed me a link to an article on Times Online this morning.
Iceland: Frozen Assets, by A.A. Gill.
Lots of links get left in the comments to this site – and I welcome them – but I rarely post a link on the front page of this blog unless I feel it is exceptional. This one is. One reader comments below the article: “I have never read a more elegantly written article in my life.” I come close to sharing his view. Very impressive.*
MORE OF THE SAME: COLD AND PRETTY
It is another morning with brilliant blue skies, though there are cloud banks hovering and slightly more of a breeze than yesterday. Right now -2°C [28F]. Sunrise this morning came at 11.15 and sunset due for 3.30 pm.
* AlthoughI must say I don’t agree with everything A.A. Gill writes, particularly his preoccupation with Icelanders and alcohol. Not everyone here is a lush who drinks until they fall down and spends the night lying on the [geothermally-heated] pavement. Harumph!
