See, I had to write that last post, just so I could keep writing about the polar bears, because of the promise I made at the very end of the post before that, and I never break a promise.
There were some people out touring today, in a place called Hveravellir, which is up north but quite a distance inland. These people claim they saw bear tracks, plain as day. According to police in Blönduós, these people seemed very credible even if they were foreigners [kidding!] [no, really!] and drew a picture of the tracks that – gasp! – looked absolutely like the genuine article.
[Aside: why didn’t they take a picture? Whoever heard of tourists who don’t carry a camera??]
Anyway, did that old man or did he not say that there would be three bears?
