Today I read an article in the newspaper about the economy in Iceland. They were doing so well in the recent years but for the past year the value of their currency against the Euro has been cut in half. Nobody wants to keep money these days. One Icelander described it this way: "Currently money in Iceland is like a hot potato". The article concludes with a press release of the Icelandic tourist board that promotes Iceland now as a great destination for family vacation and even for Christmas shopping.

Optimism is obviously an Icelandic virtue.

Let's support their optimism by sending them our best wishes!
