A couple of blog posts ago I made an observation about the churches being one of the few buildings locked in Iceland. Well, I now know why. Alda told me this morning that there was a report on the news about a church in a small farming community which was left unlocked. When someone came to check on the building, they found someone (or someones) had been using the chapel as a camping spot, pitching their tent, using the christening font to wash dishes, and using their camping stove inside.
Apparently this is why locking the church building can be a very beneficial practice. I just hope they were using the camp stove to cook fish.
