An Icelandic Flea Market
One of the things I love about vacation is trying something new.
There was cod, salmon, dried fish fillets. Everywhere you looked, a fish was (or fish parts were) staring at you.
There were even some samples!
Next up was the meat section.
Among the blood sausages, large amounts of beef, and lamb stakes, I discovered something truly disgusting.
Can you guess what these are?
That’s right, horse sausauges! Isn’t that awful?
Instead I hurried over to a display of speckled eggs.
Apparently, as the man selling the eggs explained to me, they were from an Icelandic seabird called the kittiwake.
Never having heard of thie bird, the eggs interested me, not only because of their spots, but also because of the unique fact that they probably only come from Iceland.
That’s another thing I love about vacation; all the unique things you stumble across, that you could never find at home.
