Kolaportið, Kaffi, and Kormákur

After yesterday's adventures, I decided to take it a little easier today, sticking close to my apartment. I did go to Kolaportið, a combination flea market/grocery with a wide variety of seafood, meats, pastries and even a few vegetables:

I spent the afternoon in the company of an old blog-pal, her husband and their absolutely charming toddler:

In the evening I went to see Baltasar Kormakur's newest film Djupið, (The Deep), a true story of a fisherman who swam seven miles in the frigid sea after his ship sank. Brutally realistic: they filmed in the ship as it was sinking!

Great. Now you'll never take the ferr to Heimay, or the boat to Drangey. You should avoid films like this!

The film elicited an animal fear response in me, I've never experienced anything like it.

It is a rare film that can bring out that kind of feeling. I am slowly turning green with envy. It is a rare blog that can do that, also.

Djupið is the Icelandic entry to this years Academy Awards. It should get to Netflix eventually.
