The Real Iceland

Over the last four years I've tried to impart a sense of what I have found interesting about Iceland. Maria Roff, whose blog is titled Iceland Eyes, has been writing and posting photos about her life in Iceland for that period of time as well. Her latest project, Iceland Says consists of posts from her students on the theme of "My life as an Icelander." This is essential reading. If "the child is the father/mother of the man/woman" then these teens are the literate parents of the next generation of Icelandic adults. They are just kids, but they already have a keen sense of their place in their country and the world. A great, great blog.
