This is Heba, my host at Guesthouse Heba. She was showing me the Icelandic genealogy website that put her at the 29th generation from the first Viking to come to Iceland. If you know any Icelandic people, here’s the website in English.
Here come waterfalls… in the RAIN… from guidetoiceland.is “The whole area is geologically very young, formed during the last Ice Age by the lava flows from numerous volcanoes in the area. The lowlands are surrounded by volcanically active mountains, notably Eyjafjallajökull and Hekla.” These are the two volcanoes I could see from my balcony at Guesthouse Heba. What a stroke of luck that yesterday it was a sunny.
