We are living in fragile and delicate times. Some even say that we have already entered an era of consequences-consequences of our own actions; displacement, manipulation and disrespect towards nature. In Iceland you can find the most powerful expression nature can have: volcanos, geysers and glaciers: Icelanders intergrate their daily life with a belief in elves, trolls, hidden people and ghosts and one would think this makes them close to nature. The question is: Are they? Are we all taking enough care of nature?
