A unique and independent country

I just returned from a long weekend in Iceland with Mrs. Donatella. I will try and do the place and its people some justice by writing in due course. However it is certainly a unique country with a strong and independent people. It is refreshing to go somewhere so distinctive, especially at a time when so many places start to look a bit the same. There is no risk of that happening to Iceland just yet. Here are a few photos that give an indication of this. (click on the photos to see full size, if interested)

The spaceship like tower of the Hallgrimskirkja in Reykjavik.

Steam rises out of the ground at the place that gave the name to "Geysirs"

Water pours over the edge of the Gullfoss falls in Iceland (tiny figures at the top of the photo give a sense of scale)
