Today I went to Bónus to see if they were putting the Jólakaka and other Christmas foods on sale. They were not, how strange.
Disappointed, I went around the supermarket down a small alleyway, and surprisingly uncovered an Esperanto center! They got the Verda Stelo, books in Esperanto, as well as a small introduction to Esperanto written in Icelandic.
On the east wall of the Esperanto room, there was a giant graffiti flower.
Seriously, I haven’t mentioned yet, but Reykjavík is covered with graffitis. Look at it.
It’s amazing. There are graffitis on walls, garbage bins, road signs, etc. I think the only places where there aren’t any graffiti are inside the buildings. Considering that Reykjavík has very low crime rate, I think this is a good counterexample of the broken window theory.
I bought two Christmas cakes anyway, to see what they are. Jólakaka and Jólaterta.
Their mass is composed of 30% sugar and 15% fat. Amazing. Jólakaka is like very sweet ordinary cake, but a lot drier and thus breaks into bits easily. It contains raisins. Jólaterta is very sweet, made of alternating layers of hard cake and red bean paste.
Spoiler: I threw away both of them without finishing them. Too sweet.
