The Long and Twisty Road

Why Twisty Roads?

Why do we like looking at twisty roads? I would love it if I could find a psychological analysis of this… there must be some reason…

If anything, I think it might be related to that other larger phenomenon I have mentioned before. That idea that our pleistocene-savannah brains like to see: fresh water (survival), trees (shelter), open plains (predators), vast skies (weather), and paths (game or human habitation). It may just be related to that last one.

I lament I can’t remember exactly where this is in Iceland. I think it was up by lake Myavatn, but I’m not totally sure.

That word Myavatn is related to little mosquitoes. I wondered why it had that name until about 5 AM one day. There were millions… and I mean millions of mosquitoes that came out of nowhere! It was one of those weather-things were the temperature is just perfect and they get up and go crazy for a few hours before settling down again. I had to retreat into the car mostly for reasons of sanity!
