Iceland on Saturdays

I have decided not to write about the crisis in Iceland until I am back home in three weeks, but today I watched this video and somehow it touched me a lot. It is about the protests that have been held every saturday for the last past weekends. Iceland is my home now... it is where I have my family, my friends, our home, my college and my life. It is sad that I will be back to a different country. When I left Iceland in May everything seemed to be fine and now everything is uncertain. The mood is different. Is it worse? I don't know... I am not there yet.

BUT I have been reading Iceland Weather Report blog and Vida na Islandia. It is a great way to keep updated! Alda, from Iceland Weather Report, is a brave and intelligent woman. She writes about her personal experience connected to Iceland and not only news.

I am definetly looking forward to go back home, to go back to Iceland!

... and finish all the endless projects at Edinburgh Academy of Arts!
