Is That Horse Dead Yet?

I fully realize that I have now discussed the outrageous expensiveness in Iceland at least five times already in this space. I won't beat a dead horse (or have I already begun merely by creating this post?). So, short story shorter: Tokyo is no longer the world's most expensive city . . . Oslo, Norway is. That's not the point though. The point, my friends, is that Reykjavik has moved into #3. I'm still convinced that there's no way Oslo and Tokyo are more expensive than Reykjavik, but at least the #3 spot somewhat vindicates my position.

Here's a picture of a hippie in Reykjavik contemplating the outrageous costs of everything :


Many thanks to Nicole for sending me the link to the article (although I don't know how I missed it, seeing as how I'm obsessed with the cost of things in Iceland).

It's neat that in the picture, it looks like dusk, which I suppose it is, except that the picture was taken sometime after midnight.
