In Reykjavík I fainted on the bus and frightened the driver and threw up on the side of the road and apologised to the emergency medical technicians for calling them unnecessarily.
Jón told me that I should go into politics. I asked him if he met Björk and he said that he had at one point when he was younger, when he was an actor. Then he went into politics so he wasn’t in the same crowd even though they were roughly the same age and in Reykjavík at the same time.
Reykjavík has a cosy vibe. The summer was bright and crisp and there was little evidence of the Global Financial Crisis. It’s when you leave the city and find the abandoned villages and empty houses that you see the true effects.
