Black and White, Hard and Soft
Visiting the tiny fishing village of Eyrarbakki on the southern coast of Icleand, home to only 570 people (not including the prisoners at the village's prison, Iceland's largest), I was struck once again by the dramatic contrasts I noticed all through Iceland: icy cold next to fiery hot, soft and fluffy against hard and sharp. In this case it was pitch black, jagged sand covered by pure white, soft foam. I know now why they call Iceland "The Land of Fire and Ice." Such contrasts run throughout the country and make it a magical place unlike any I've ever seen.
