N is for NEMA and Northern
Posted for ABC Wednesday
I missed part of the alphabet while we were away on our most recent adventure, and the only "N" I could remember seeing in Iceland was the Northern Lights, which we were unable to photograph without a tripod.
Then I found this photo of a sign in the Icelandic language.
"NEMA pJONUSTUUMFERD" doesn't really get the point across because I can't replicate the extra letters in the Icelandic alphabet, but it gives you an idea how long the words can be.
I don't know about the house that the English part of the sign refers to, but I am here to testify that Icelandic seafood is delicious indeed. I spent most of my adult life in or near the city of Vancouver, British Columbia, with plenty of excellent seafood all around me, but (may my beloved BC forgive me) it doesn't hold a candle to Icelandic seafood from the icy waters of the North Atlantic.
