Don’t dress us as Native Americans

Description: Proficient tips provider. Last Halloween I was sitting on the front porch watching Scrub Jays dart from branch to branch. I lit candles in the pumpkins we carved and waited for the parade of kids trick-or-treating. Then came the rush of footsteps and laughter. I chatted with parents, oohed and aahed over the costumes. One kid was dressed as a purple dinosaur. Another was made to look like grapes wearing a green shirt covered with green balloons. And then there was a tiny girl with two long black braids, wearing faux-leather, dressed as Pocahontas or Sacajawea, and her dad wearing a headdress. – PowerPoint PPT presentation

Title: Don’t dress us as Native Americans

1 10 Places in Iceland to Connect
with Earth and Nature
  • 10 amazing places in Iceland to visit to connect
    with nature and mother earth
  • Driving through Iceland, the land of Fire and
    Ice, is a powerful journey. As you admire its
    landscapes, your mind and soul experience
    incredible connected moments such as
  • when you feel the powerful activity under your
  • when you almost travel to planet Mars.
  • when you half expect a dinosaur to show up.
  • These 10 places in Iceland listed below are not
    as famous as other natural wonders around the
    world, but their raw nature and intensity do make
    you feel a higher connection with Mother Earth.
  • 1. Haukadalalur
  • Geysir in Iceland
  • Part of the Golden Circle in South West Iceland,
    the geothermal area is quite an attraction. It is
    home of the famous Geysir but you need to be
    lucky to see it erupt.
  • However the little brother Strokkur is very
    active. Its powerful jet of water happens every
    few minutes, so you have plenty of time to really
    experience this wonder the bubble growing and
    growing followed by the column of water which
    reaches 15 to 20 meters high, sometimes to 40

2. Jokulsarlon Beach One of the most touristic
spots on the south coast of Iceland is the
beautiful lagoon of Jokulsarlon where the glacier
releases huge icebergs. However most visitors do
not cross the road to the black sand beach and
miss one of the countrys highlights. The
icebergs actually float through a channel into
the sea and are pushed back towards the beach by
the tide. You can approach these giant blocks of
ice and touch them. Some are white, other black
and a few are blue, but all look stunning against
the waves and the black sand. Truly a privilege
to see this work of nature. 3. Hverir Iceland has
many geothermal areas but my favorite is Hverir
in North Iceland. You can feel the Earth boiling
just under the crust with the powerful gas
released from the fumaroles and the mud pools.
All this activity is intensified by the bare
surrounding landscape and the ground colors and
the red of Namafjall, the hill behind. 4.
Sigoldugljufur   Hidden in the Central Highlands,
the canyon of Sigoldugljufur is very little
known. We ended up there by accident and it was
one of those moments where you feel you have
reached paradise nothing around, just you and
nature. As the others kept photographing, I sat
there in silence enjoying every curve of the
canyon and every small tear waterfall. Mother
Nature is an artist! 5. Hverfjall I had seen
small volcanic craters before Hverfjall in North
Iceland, but its size and bare landscape makes it
one of a kind. As I walked the 1km long rim of
the 140 meter deep volcano, my mind started
traveling back in time 2,800 years ago and
imagining the power of the eruption. I felt
privileged to see the evidence of such an intense
event. 6. Blue Lagoon  
I must admit, contrary to most visitors of
Iceland, I am not a big fan of the Blue Lagoon.
And by that I mean the spa and the huge flow of
tourists. The lagoon itself is man-made but the
fascinating part is that the geothermal seawater
comes from 2,000 meters beneath the surface. It
has traveled through porous lava, reaches us at
50C and ends up at 38C in the lagoon. Can you
imagine it coming from so deep under us?
