I Got a Care Package from Iceland!

Speaking of taking care of our friends… I got a care package from Iceland today! You know I’ve been all about Iceland lately, there’s been Ásgeir Trausti (his album “Dýrð í dauðaþögn” is simply awesome), Jón Gnarr (the anarchist comedian that was mayor of Reykjavik), Sólstafir (metal, check out their song “Fjara”), the Icelandic language, which I find absolutely beautiful, Icelandic friends, – and that Icelandic nasal snuff, neftóbak. I know you think it’s bizarre, but it’s simply the best bad habit I’ve ever had.

Seeing you can’t get it in Norway, I have to trust my friends overseas to ship it to me. The thought of running out almost makes me panic. (In the beginning I slept with the single pack I had under my pillow.) Today a new batch arrived in the mail. I can sleep soundly for some time ahead.

But it did not only contain that, it also contained some other Icelandic goodies. Dried fish. I love dried fish. And this was good dried fish! And dulse, dried seaweed! Never had that before.

And candy… Icelandic candy! With and without banana flavor.

And last, but not least, I got a super cute Icelandic beanie. Excuse my damp hair, I had just gotten out of the shower.

Thank you Iceland! Thank you Bergur! Thank you neftóbak!
