    These are quite breath-taking. Scenes of climate-induced desolation which makes me wonder “Why do people want to live there?” – though that’s NOT a serious question. From this perspective it seems a little sad to think that those native Icelanders who haven’t travelled abroad won’t know what a truly warm day feels like. (Maybe they get the very occasional freak ‘taster’). On the other hand, perhaps they don’t want to know.

    Amsterdam has, or used to have, a Sex Museum – sex in general, from what I recall, not a penis-specific one. It also has/had a torture museum showing instruments of torture through the ages, many of them religion-inspired (wouldn’t you know?) and sex organ-orientated. Only went there once and even now it’s so deeply etched in my mind that it gives me the shivers to have seen what ingeniously bizarre ideas (not to say downright painful!) the human mind could come up with.

    The penis museum was too hard to get into.

    ho!

    I think the weather is actually OK, just highly variable over a 24 hour period! In the winter, it hovers around zero, which is “OK” and in the summer can be very pleasant indeed. The location near the Arctic circle is one thing, but the warm Atlantic current has a big impact on the weather.

    I’d love to spend more time there touring about a bit, especially in the summer.

    Thanks for that, Stephen. Funny that I hadn’t noticed the top picture before (you?) – either I’m going a bit loopy or maybe you ‘sneakily’ inserted it as an afterthought. Perhaps it’s better that I remain in ignorance.

    That’s Pete in the top picture. I think WordPress had a hiccup as I had added it initially but it just wouldn’t show!

    And it’s difficult to get scale into a photo like the waterfall – that is about 60 metres high and very noisy

    The waterfall has suddenly become more spectacular and even a bit scary – but I’d LOVE to have seen (and heard) it in reality.
