2017

Marcia and I greeted 2017 in Reykjavik, watching the Icelanders absolutely lose their collective minds in an orgy of pyrotechnics and bonfires. Never mind some city sponsored “shows” staged by a fireworks company — in Iceland, it’s every man, woman and child for him/herself, with all the explosives you can afford and carry. My ears are still ringing and I still smell like gunpowder as I enjoy the first coffee of 2017. Now that is a celebration. More words and pics to follow when we get home, and I am posting these from my phone so I can’t really attest to their quality, but here’s a tiny taste of what it looked and felt like.

  1. Happy New Year to you and Marcia

    .9:01 New Year’s Day Australia. Still 30c in my office tonight. Has been hellishly hot here and dry as a bone. Garden is all brown and crispy but I see we might get some rain this week and a cool change on the way too. Cheers 🙂
