    Iceland ki sundarta aur aap ke chayachitran ko mera “Námaskarð”. Sounds like a Bengali dada saying namaskar. :-)ReplyCancel

The water’s edge.

Gentle lapping of the waves, birdsong, and the rustle of fishermen going about their chores commingle as the curtain rises on a misty morning in Siridona, Goa. A short video below captures the rhythms. This is a follow-up to the preceding post, Serene Siridona.

Birthplace of Iceland’s beloved hero.

Hrafnseyri is best known as the birthplace of Jón Sigurðsson, the pioneer of Iceland‘s independence movement. This ancient parsonage and farm on Arnarfjörður has an even earlier history. It is named after Hrafn Sveinbjarnarson who lived around the 13th C, and is said to be the first trained doctor in Iceland.
