Volcano in Iceland

Even though I’ve never actually seen all these places I’m posting about, just writing and learning about them makes me feel connected to them. So when I heard about the volcanic eruption in Iceland today (see The New York Times article here), just over a month after I wrote about Iceland’s precarious position on top of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, I paid more attention to the story than I usually would.

The following video shows the actual eruption happening live. As adventurous as I am, I’m usually not the type of person who seeks out potentially fatal natural disasters, but it would have been amazing to watch this:



  1. This volcano has really been a pain! Still cool though

  2. So true Emilie! I wish it hadn’t caused such a disruption.

  3. That’s actually my brain after watching Friends.
