One final Icelandic note... Last night as I getting ready to head back North American way, I got to experience a very different side of the country as some 8,000 people (or like 7% of Reykjavik) gathered outside parliament - which was essentially a block from my hotel - to protest the government's response to the domestic economic situation, as many households face mounting debts and foreclosures. It was largely peaceful, but it was certainly passionate. A local explained to me that essentially everyone in the country support the protests, and "it was about time" they started going down.
