We are team Iceland. We don’t know what Icelandic stereotypes are but we probably fit them. Some of us are experienced Pimdi-peeps while others bring a new perspective to the upcoming intensive week, but we are all looking forward to meeting you, our fellow students and collegues. Following is a little bit about each of us – only not all of it is true, it’s yours to decide what to believe. And yes, we definitely met up to take that photo.
