The world is a small, small place. Monday night, at Reykjavik's only microbrewery, I ran into a co-worker from a stint in 2010 with Duke TIP Summer Studies at Trinity University in San Antonio. Tuesday afternoon, while watching people gather in the city center to cheer on their team in the UEFA EURO Group stage we ran into someone from UVA. There were other little bits of serendipity throughout the day and I hope that is an indication of amazing things to come on this trip.
Taking advantage of the clear weather on the summer solstice, I went to the western edge of the harbor to capture the sunset, officially registered at 12:03am. There was constant twilight until the sunrise at 2:55am.
About the H. Allen Brooks Travelling Fellowship
The H. Allen Brooks Travelling Fellowship was established in 2010 by a bequest from noted scholar and architectural historian H. Allen Brooks. It is intended to provide emerging scholars the opportunity to study by travel and contemplation while observing, photographing, writing and sketching, and to acquire knowledge that will contribute to one’s profession and to society. Brooks was an active member and past president of SAH.
