Yes, here I am.
After some weeks I can say I definitely live and work in Iceland.
I was in a car about three weeks ago, on the way from Selfoss to Reykjavík. After leaving Hveragerði, we went up a plateau covered with snow. Clouds of steam came out of geothermal power stations, and a line of snowed mountains sorrounded us. I felt the landscape took me out of the car, chewed me and spat me out into an oneiric place.
I hope I will have some more time to write about it soon, but believe me: so far, this is the most incredible experience I've had in many many years. The landscape is so different from all the places I had been to before, that sometimes it feels as if I was dreaming. Lava and ice, fire and snow, northern lights, volcanoes... It´s all so beautiful!
