The police were called to a store in Reykjavík earlier this week in response to a report of peculiar behavior of a young man. The man, who was only wearing pants and socks, had lain down to sleep in the store. He later began to converse with the seat of the police car.
Iceland is at a turning point concerning strain on nature caused by tourism, according to director of the Icelandic Tourism Research Center (ITRC) Edward H. Huijbens, who hosted a conference on the issue on Thursday.
The energy of the geothermal areas in Bárðarbunga volcano in Vatnajökull now measures several hundred megawatts and the melting of glacial ice is estimated at approximately 2 cubic meters per second.
The meeting held on Wednesday to discuss the wage dispute between the Icelandic Medical Association (LÍ) and the state ended with no solution. The first strike among doctors in Iceland ended at midnight yesterday, but a new strike is set to start on Monday.
