  • Durante il nostro viaggio in Islanda siamo stati a Húsavík.

    Una sera, dopo cena, ci siamo messi a camminare ed abbiamo trovato una strada chiusa alle macchine da una sbarra.

    C’era anche un cartello, ma ovviamente per noi era incomprensibile.

    Anche se lo avessimo compreso, da bravi Italiani, abbiamo oltrepassato la sbarra e ci siamo incamminati.

    Alla fine del sentiero davanti a noi, sul mare, abbiamo incontrato uno dei più struggenti tramonti che avessimo mai visto.

    In lontananza, sulla nostra destra, abbiamo visto il motivo del cartello: la discarica dei metalli.

    Lo spettacolo più bello, il tramonto infinito era lì, a fianco della discarica.

    Dove non ce lo aspettavamo.

    During our trip in Iceland we stayed at Húsavík.

    One evening, after dinner, we started walking and found a road closed to cars by a bar.

    There was also a sign, but of course for us was incomprehensible.

    Even if we had understood, as good Italians, we have passed the bar and we walked.

    At the end of the path before us, over the ocean, we met one of the most enchanting sunset we had ever seen.

    In the distance on our right, we saw the reason for the sign: the dumping of metals.

    The most beautiful, infinite sunset was there, next to the landfill.

    Where we didn’t expect it.
