And what the heck kind of ugly fish is that anyway?. Until the mid-to-late 19th century, most financial transactions in Iceland were conducted in vaðmál (homespun wool).

Ragna Ólöf Guðmundsdóttir: "The ugly, gross-tasting fish's roe are a highly priced export product, as is the fish itself lately, so let's be nice about the lumpfish!". Gunnar Friðrik: "They used to be worth something. 23 years ago this coin used to be a 100 króna bill. I was able to go to Sjoppa and purchase decent amount of Bland í poka ( mix of Candy) for 100 króna. Nowadays it will probably be 2-3 pieces of Candy.". Erik Smit: "It is almost a euro. When I visited Iceland 2 years ago it was a bit less... but supermarket prices struck me as relatively normal, so I would think some supermarket items cost no more than 100 krónur?". Erik Smit: "Yes! a bottle of water! Of 3 cans of tomato paste! Or a carton of apple juice! http://www.bonus.is/bladid/". Benjamin Hanchett: "Lumpfish are the coolest looking alien reptile fish out there". Norberto Lindgren: "Here's what I don't understand, why is Iceland the coin capital of the world? The coins there literally reproduce in your pocket!! I challenge anyone to find a register anywhere else in the world that requires as many coin slots as the Icelandic registers have. #challenge.". Christian Lewis: "10ISK much more annoying!". Caroline Chadwick: "Never as good as the crabs!

24-05-2017 21:27 Guy Dale does something. À Tardinha - Mute Swimmer. À TARDINHA é um ciclo de concertos organizado pela GRUA estúdio no LAB 11 da Plataforma das Artes. Mute Swimmer é o Projecto principal do artista Britânico Guy Dale, que vive e trabalha em Berlim. Entre mudanças de colaboradores, este, descreve o projecto como sendo "governado pela graça, dúvida e sabotagem". As suas canções são abordadas de uma forma intensa e possante consideradas melancólicas e ironicamente engraçadas entre as táticas de um artista. Considerado um performer irresistível, a sua música resulta da fusão da canção tradicional melódica com as artes performativas, a folk e o post-rock. www.facebook.com/muteswimmer www.guydale.com http://muteswimmer.bandcamp.com/ 18h - Receção 19h - Concerto 20h - Dj set GRUA Design: @[758503485:2048:Inês Castro].

Roberto L. Pagani: ""Instead, we should take this as an opportunity to look at the world from someone else’s perspective and learn from each other." What are we supposed to learn from this incident?". David Kempf: "I enjoy this line in your article you state " we should take this as an opportunity to look at the world from someone else’s perspective and learn from each other", yet Robert Spencer shows up in Iceland and all the The Reykjavík Grapevine did was lambaste him.". Michael Krauss: "Tourist need to respect the laws of the land they are visiting. If they can't they are free to travel elsewhere. This whole thing could have been avoided with a call before hand asking for a male driver.". Óscar Díaz: "Yes, and what happened with the bus driver and the group of islamic tourists? Did the female bus driver continued to do her job or not? It seems like in the last paragraph, the writer is passively accepting these kinds of incidents under the flag of being open to different points of view and that's sad, i think.". Asim Rehan Mayo: "i think they should have respected the country rules and laws, i am a muslim living in Iceland and i fully respect Icelandic Rules and i urge to all other Muslims to do the same". Dan Mayer: "This is Iceland, not Oman. If you insist on a male driver, rent your own bus and hire your own driver. Its that simple. The West cannot be expected to condone discrimination in the name of multicultural understanding.". Dan Mayer: "FYI- In the Gulf States they will beat you down if you fail to follow their cultural standards.". Byron Hathcock: "Wow, the summary of that article actually asked us to look at it from the pov of the sexist Islamist.". Robin Bristow: "I guess the the three options available then are (1) walk; (2) wait for another bus; or, (3) visit another country. Why travel to another country if you are not willing to take part in their culture and customs? Especially Iceland ... such a beautiful place with such amazing people.". Patrick Hammond: ""Instead, we should take this as an opportunity to look at the world from someone else’s perspective and learn from each other. " You're coming dangerously close to moral cowardice here. Women are equal, and free, or not. Take a stand.". Robert Żywno: "They don't like it They shouldn't go And no money back That's what happens when you travel: Things are not the same as back home!". Sasun Vartanyan: "If someone else's viewpoint involves discrimination based on gender (or any other factor), there is NO excuse for it.. They have NO right to impose their ideology..". Robert Żywno: "That last paragraph was written when that weed puff just kicked in and the words started to jumble... lol". Sandra Carolane Proust: "This is sad in so many way. First, because they do that in one of the most feminist country in the world : dudes read the brochure before traveling. Second, they dare acting like this because now majority are afraid of their religion. Muslim = terrorist so lets them do whatever they want. And finaly because it another bad image of Islam. This is not islam, this is extrem sexism and stupidity. Im sad that now this is how people are "muslim". They just treat woman like inferior and yupee they are officialy in the crew. I would love to have more stories about muslim and not about retarded men using islam as a weapon.". Dan Mayer: "Left-wing extremists will say: "we should conform to their cultural needs when they visit us, since we are The West and we invaded their lands. But when we visit their nations, we should follow their rules. We iz da bad guys and we are always wrong" :)". Vesna Pleticos: "I wonder if the company exchaned the driver sadly turist companys bow don infront of turists and it schould be not that way.". Christer Hummelstedt: "I think the choice in Iceland is simple. Either you accept the driver and get a ride. Or you walk. Likewise with airplanes. If you accept the pilot you fly. Or take for instance a boat or a car and drive yourselves. (PS There are a lot of female pilots on Finnair, and many, many other airlines).". Andreas Danzer: "Muslims... where ever they show up, they think everyone has to play by their rules. Always demanding respect for their medieval culture. If you don't comply, you're an islamophob racist. Sick of that shit.". Manuel Moreira: "WTF is wrong with you? "But we should be ware of the peanut gallery. Online competitions for who’s got the moral high ground, as much as they can be entertaining, get old, fast. Instead, we should take this as an opportunity to look at the world from someone else’s perspective and learn from each other. As difficult as it is, it’s still the most rewarding part of living in a country where we’re increasingly being exposed to different stories and experiences." Moral high ground?! In Iceland gays get married, they're not killed nor ostracised. Women vote, drive, work and can even run the country, they are not subjugated. Atheists are allowed to openly speak against religion instead of being sentenced to lashes for offending anyone's imaginary friend! It disgusts me that you claim that anyone who points out something so obvious is having a "moral high ground". Some people come from a culture of oppression, mistreatment and prejudice, to point that out is not taking a moral high ground. Cultures are ideologies, they have no rights, people do, and people are often oppressed by these ideologies that some rush to downplay or defend. There is nothing to learn from patriarchy, to downplay this and paint it as just a learning opportunity sickens me. Many people fled those countries to find a place where they can be free, to downplay their pain like this, to make patriarchy of the worst kind seem something so shallow and unimportant, to spit through words on those who speak out about this as people who take a moral high ground.. I am lost for words honestly, I am sickened to the core. I love The Reykjavík Grapevine but sometimes, I feel that you have placed ideologies above people, and it seems in this case you will do anything to downplay islamic "misbehaviour" in the name of either excessive political correctness or your own self-censorship, 'cause I am trying to avoid believing that you are so delusional as to turn patriarchy into a "learning experience".". Al Maldonado: "In American Liberal areas, American flags MUST be taken down. So we don't offend the Muslims. I hope you folks go to that extreme...". Dall Wilson: "Islam is a slave plantation, its absurd rules enforced by coercion. Free states outlawed slavery, involuntary servitude, two centuries ago. Same issues today , same rhetoric between slave gangs (ironically still Islamic) and free states. See Robert Ingersoll, Atty Genl Illinois 1880s, on this issue. Freedom of religion is liberty to change without punishment. Not free to be say cannibal or like that.". Lisa Freydis McEntire: "If you do not accept our ways of life.... you can simply go back from where you came from !!! Acceptance to their way is not the right way. It is the immigrants who should accept our ways... This is where the rest of Europe has gone wrong. Do you want the result that other Nordic countries have suffered already ! When and where will we finally stand up and draw a line to what is accepted in OUR countries !!! Have we not seen enough of this everywhere else ! Say what you want, no matter how harsh the comments I get... I stand very strong against this bullshit.". Barbara Rowe: "Wow, if anyone objected to these tourists need for a male driver here in America, charge of racism would be screamed from all sides! Enjoying these comments!". Jenny Manganaro: "The treatment of women and girls in this religion should be cause for great concern. It is not ok ever. I wish we would stop thinking it is akin to just hoping for a stay at home wife. It is the promotion of women as null beings to even be circumcised so sex cannot be enjoyed. This is an evil belief system that even the so called moderate muslims do not condemn.". Shabnam Doobal: "While I find the tourists' request absurd, the hatred in the comments above is more concerning. Truly disgusting to read all this hate. Where has this hatred gotten humanity in the past?".
