After finishing ICELAND, I ran to my laptop in search of this word. Besty used it quite a few times and I figure that I would figure out what the hell it meant.

I also learned that they have sorrel in Iceland, which is cool. In Trinidad, we use to flower portion of the plant and boil it down into a drink. Apparently that plant is common in Iceland. Go figure!


You learned something new today!
