I am writing this in Keflavik Airport, waiting for my flight back to Denmark, and savouring the wonderful experience of attending this weekend's Arctic Circle 2016 in Iceland's capital, Reykjavik. Outside the sun is shining.
Weather-wise, the Icelandic capital didn't cooperate. The weather was awful. But otherwise Reykjavik was a most gracious host to Arctic Circle 2016, the fourth of its kind, bringing together...

Beetle, which we became quite attached to. We covered Connecticut,
Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont and New York State,
and thus did exactly what Europeans have always criticized Americans, then the

Originalt og påtrængende med udgangspunkt i tusindårige kinesiske traditioner, nutiden og somme tider også...
🇵🇦 We went to Panama over Easter and had the loveliest break there. Wonderful and very friendly people, beautiful place, terrific food, and the wildly impressive canal, where I was so lucky as to be invited to actually open a lock gate for a huge container ship heading East from the Pacific. The locks are computerized now. But the old system still functions. Managing the lock was...
