This week I wanted to take a little bit of time to talk about the Icelandic class I’ve been taking this semester.
Sella was eager for the company of fellow Icelanders when she arrived in Norfolk, Virginia in 1983. She soon found one Icelandic woman in town, who pointed to another.

They had one thing in common. They were passionate about Iceland, and intent on establishing a US-Iceland Association.
Eating this cake brings me back to my Amma’s flat in 101 Reykjavík, sitting round her little table; I was allowed to have coffee with the cake just like the grownups! It is great all year round not just the holidays.
