I always tend to believe that ppl are very brave to live in these kind of areas,
but they`re beautiful nevertheless.

South Iceland Farmer Decides to Take a Break
The farmer Ólafur Eggertsson at Thorvaldseyri, whose farm is located at the base
of Eyjafjallajökull glacier, has decided not to continue with grain and dairy farming
next summer because of the damage ash and flooding has caused to his pastures.
Eggertsson and his farm became world famous when a unique photograph that he
took showing the farm’s closeness to the volcano was printed in the international media.
The farmer is now hoping that the money he has earned in the process will cover some
of the financial damages caused to his farm by the eruption.
