If they ever tear that place down, plow it under, or refurbish it, I will be very sad. The Kreppa will probably preserve it in its núverandi form, however.

This summer the heitir pottar were full of the usual suspects:
  • Ormtyngdur former institute director backtalking his colleagues
  • Broad-faced giant absently fiddling with his own nipples
  • A young bóndi from Dalasýsla reminiscing about the countryside with men much older than he by enumerating the things vanished from his valley: the slaughterhouse, the children, the majority of the sheep
  • Pensioner with an unending book project that brings him daily to his desk at the library and then to his evening soak
  • The usual token foreigner, oblivious to the content of the skvaldur around him

It does not mention the encrustation of chattering characters on the edges of the hot tubs, but I have even greater faith in their salutary effects on body and soul.

Engin ummæli:
