I'd heard of Eurovision, but I'd never imagined I would ever sit down to watch it. Apparently here it is an excuse to hold a crazy party. More and more people in Iceland started talking about it so I decided I'd give it a try one windy summer's day. Unfortunately I missed Iceland's great semi-final performance because I had difficulty finding AL's house since I don't have a TV. We all had good fun making fun of all the countries and their stupid voting decisions. Iceland made it to the finals, but I won't be there to see it because I'll be on a glacier!

AL's interpretation of the Bosnian singer.


Another cultural note: movies here just stop right in the middle of screening for intermission. It's so startling.
