    was about Pompeii and Mt. Vesuvius.  It left its mark.  But thank you for the reassurance and the warning about the crevices.  I appreciate the great survey course on Iceland that you wrapped up into a truly joyous read.
    Perhaps modesty kept you from pointing out that the people in Iceland tend to be better looking than most others, but it's likely that happiness is a prime factor for beauty.

    •  Haha, well, beauty is subjective. (2+ / 0-)

      But I am, in general, quite in agreement   ;)  Just a side observation: most Icelanders look older than they really are! (the opposite of what I experienced when traveling in Japan).  More than a couple times I've met some guy, gone out on a "date", then later added him on Facebook and when their birthday showed up, my immediate reaction was, "Oh my god, you're how old?"
