In this Newscast we visited Árbæjarsafn. And in our top news; elections are on Saturday. It’s been a slow campaign but it could be upended by smaller parties. The storm season has started, the weather has been cold and windy and could be getting even worse. There is no volcano at Askja … yet. And the US is about to open its borders for Europeans, which is great news for Icelandic airlines and the travel industry.
