Reactions to Icelandic Week
After Icelandic week, I am more intrigued than ever by Icelandic culture. The movie was pretty eye opening in terms of the party seen, and the openness and relaxation about people's sexuality and sexual practices. It disturbed me a bit about the characters lack of care about AIDS and other STDs, and Agusta seemed to indicate that this was still a common occurrence, and not just something "in the movies". Iceland, nevertheless does seem to be a fun place. Agusta's lecture only reinforced this when she spoke about New Year's Eve and the nightlife in Iceland. I am amazed at how the country has grown given its unpopular climate, and lack of resources. However, it does seem as though Icelanders really know how to have a good time!
