A Few More Moments From Iceland
So, here we have geysers and waterfalls and the astonishingly vast Gullfoss, which looks like the opening scene of ‘Prometheus’ (which was filmed in Iceland), our guide scaling a crevasse in an attempt to retrieve my mobile, the Blue Lagoon spa and a shop window (couldn’t go there without taking a shot of one of those) of, yes, puffins. Soft and fluffy and good to eat. Mysteriously, puffins don’t live on Iceland itself but are on a separate island, probably huddled together in terror of being eaten or made into throws.
While we were out in the wild we had several phonecalls, and after explaining where we were, callers said ‘What on earth would make you want to shop there?’ (For overseas readers, ‘Iceland’ is a Pikey supermarket.)
