Skagaströnd Town Festival

We saw many interesting things at this festival including the witchcraft museum telling the fortune of the town, a young man smoking and drinking on horseback, and what I will describe as a very unique piece of Icelandic knitwear.  It was a fun day.

Headed to the buscar.

Our carbus driver was not at all bothered by this situation.  There is a motorcyclist a few inches to our right this picture fails to capture.  And the bus left before we did.  By pulling straight forward between us and the curb with millimeters to spare.

Ceremony to tell the future of the town.  The lady with the staff was kind enough to translate the ritual for us after it was done.

Those pictures aren't the greatest, but if you look closely you can see they're drinking and smoking on horseback.
