Insomnia...

Gosh, it's good to be back home but boy did those twenty-five hour days of sunlight play havoc with my body clock. I'm not quite sure which way is up today.

Chatting to many Icelandic people over this weekend just gone they say that they have got used to having all daylight in the height of summer and all darkness in the mid-winter. And I guess that must be true because even in the five short long days we were in Reykjavik both Stu and I had adjusted so much that we were genuinely surprised to see darkness when we got back to the UK on Monday night.

Still, lovely though it was, I think if I lived in Iceland's latitude I'd be manic all summer from not being able to sleep and super-depressed all winter wondering where the light had gone.
