REYKJAVIK - AUGUST 2008
After a stroll showing offices and public buildings, most of them white or grey, it's time to put some colour on these Icelandic posts!
"SNOW CAPED ROOF WITH BLUE - Artistic"
"GREY - It's a sculpture in front..."

"WHITE AND RED"
"IT HAD TO BE YELLOW"
"ICELAND'S FLAG COLOURS"
"IDNO - Restaurant and theatre, it was built in 1897 and reconstructed in its original form in 1997. Beside the City Pond, directly opposite the City Hall, the Idno is one of the city’s most historic buildings"

"LANDSBANKI - Before going bankrupt... On October 7, 2008 the Icelandic Financial Supervisory Authority took control of Landsbanki. On October 8, 2008, UK Treasury froze the assets of Landsbanki in the UK. On October 9, 2008 the Icelandic branch was split off into the "Nýi Landsbanki" and on October 27, 2008 the inability to render payment of deposits was declared for the remaining parts of Landsbanki. Sad story..."
"REYKJAVIK JAZZ FESTIVAL - K TRIO: Kristjan Martinsson, piano, Petur Sigurdsson, bass, Magnus Eliassen, drums. At the old Idno theatre. I later found this text in the Net: «K Trio was started up by pianist Kristjan Martinsson in January 2008 to perform his compositions in Kristjans's final recital at Icelandic Musicians Union (FIH) School of Music. [...] They took part in Reykjavik Jazz Festival in August of the same year holding a concert in Idno. In September K Trio represented Iceland in The Young Nordic Jazz Comets in Copenhagen. They won the competition and as a result are working on an album (out in January 2009)» Happy story!!"
