Iceland Diaries # 9 - Independence Day


I bought this great keychain at a novelty store on Laugavegur. It's pretty cool. It says so. Thank you Solvi for picking out quality Gull.

Another polar bear shot in Iceland. 
The first polar bear, which came over on the 4th, was shot by a group of police officers saying: "There was a lot of fog in the area and the bear was moving into the fog. We couldn't risk losing him and there was no time to wait for anaesthetics, so we had to shoot him. It was for the safety of the public," Police Superintendent Stefan Vagn Stefansson told Icelandic national radio on Wednesday.

You can see the thick fog in this video when they shoot it. You can see they're quite a bit of it
