Two of my brothers are at our place, one on the way back from Iceland (his wife is Icelandic) and one on his way to New York.

So you are in London? I send you a virtual pint and - a happy new year to you too! Wish you to travel a lot and new successful projects.

PS Did you bring a bizarre present to your brother's wife?

I did bring her a weird present indeed.

Happy new year. 


Is that absinthe?

It is Brennivín, Iceland's signature alcohol beverage.

I've scrolled past this a number of times and now I have to stop and ask : WHY THE HORN?

It looks a frankly terrifying way to celebrate the new year: a very loud horn and shots, my god. :-D

Ha ha, we did not blow the horn, it is actually a present from some kid in Moldova that we brought with us and it just was there when my brother put Brennivin there too and I decided to take the photo before putting it away, it did make the photo more interesting. I am with you on this one, I do not get all those loud "explosions" to celebrate the New Year. We also do not really celebrate it usually. Here we had a couple of shots of Brennivin that one of my sisters-in-law brought with her from Iceland with my brothers because we happened to get together and to remember our time in Iceland (we have a lot of memories).

It is a magnificent-looking instrument, but perhaps not for playing late at night... :-D

We don't do much for New Year either. I was pleased for the animals that there were no fireworks!
