It has been a weird week so far in Iceland. Our election system is up in the air after a mess with the vote count in the northwest of the country and an odd light was spotted in the dark sky of Iceland on Monday. The weather is also really bad, to the extent that even the Icelandic Met office is baffled by the new storm hitting the West of Iceland.

We are now preparing the October issue of The Reykjavík Grapevine. Like usual, it includes content that will not see the light of the internet, because some stories are just better shared in physical format.

Note: Due to the effect the Coronavirus is having on tourism in Iceland, it’s become increasingly difficult for the Grapevine to survive. If you enjoy our content and want to help the Grapevine’s journalists do things like eat and pay rent, please consider joining our High Five Club.
