Legendary Reykjavík nightclub Sirkus, which practically invented the bohemian 101 scene you love or hate today, will re-open in Seyðisfjörður, East of IcelandQuite a fitting location, actually, considering how many displaced Reykjavík artists have settled there in recent years.

The car-less of the Westfjörds will soon become more mobile, as public bus transport will open in the region, albeit to a limited capacity. The buses will travel three times a week between Patreksfjörður and Ísafjörður, making a number of stops along the way, from May 15th to September 15th.

All the electricity in Þor­láks­höfn was cut off for a few hours last month by a cat who got too close to a electrical transformer. While power was soon restored, the cat unfortunately did not survive. As such, we may never know the cat’s motives for this daring act of sabotage.
