Our guide attempts to teach us a few words in Icelandic. It is a very difficult language to learn but it is thought to be one of the purest languages in Scandinavia and has changed little since the 12th century. Modern readers can read ancient texts. I found a link below which reflected what the guide told us and what we read in the National Museum of Iceland.

When Icelandic teenagers want to be "rebellious", they don't dress appropriately for the sub-freezing weather. We saw one teenager walking on the ice with a sock on one foot while the other foot was bare.
