Going to Reykjavik

“In 2006 the United States population will reach 300 million, and Iceland’s will hit 300,000. In national pride, the two countries will remain about equal, which goes a long way toward explaining why Reykjavik, Iceland’s capital, refuses to feel like a small town. About two-thirds of Icelanders live in the city and its suburbs, and if the concentration of museums and galleries, bookstores, excellent restaurants and lively night spots per capita isn’t the highest in any city in the world, it has to be close.”
