I was in my little apartment studio all day getting things ready for the conference and as soon as I found out it was canceled, I got in contact with the local Representative here, to the UK organizers as well and after took an Icelandic shower (will get to that later, lol) and out I go. A little chilly for a summer but it will do as I am wearing my new convertible bag/umbrella spring coat!
I visited a store/shop where they used the LAVASTONE and turn them into beautiful jewelry pieces. Could not believe my eyes and while there I met a very nice man, an architect from Norway using only recycle materials also, guest what? No no Umbrella (lol), coconut! Yes, coconut to make tile floor. I am telling you we are smart people, who will ever think about that. Anyway we spent 2 hours talking with the owner of the place and I help him (really asked me) choose a piece of jewelry for his wife. (Hope she will like it, lol)
Here are some pics for day 2. Enjoy!
All those beautiful pieces below are made from lavastones.
Posing with Per, he could not believe that my jacket was made out of recycled umbrellas and he is using coconut to design floor. Go figure.
Coconut. We have so many in Haiti. I even talked him about making a trip to my country. Let's wait and see!
Went to eat after for a walk. Believe it or not I took those pictures below around 10 pm. Do you see how bright it is? The sun goes down around midnight and you will think it is only 6 pm.
All stores close here at 6pm, restaurants and bars open at 5pm until 3 or 4 in the morning I have been told.
Love the originality of the stores so here are some pics.
Walking around at 11 pm. Just wanted to take some pics, because I could not believe how bright it was still.
I love the way they use their resources on practically everything.
