Iceland arrival

Meg and I hosted Disa, an AFS student from Iceland while she attended La Grande High School in 1985/86.  She was a delightful “daughter” to us and older sister to Matt and Michael. She and her husband, Einar, visited us last July in La Grande.  They were adamant then that we reciprocate and come to visit them in Iceland.  And so here were are, along with Michael and his wife, Sara.

Iceland is everything the tourist books say it is.  Here are a few pictures from the excellent trips Disa and Einar have led us on.

Disa and Einar drove us off road, off the normal tourist routes, to a remote valley where they help their farmer friends gather sheep in the fall.
