Siggeir Stefánsson thinks about the future and the possibility of turning a nearby fjord into a deepwater container port when much of Iceland has turned toward tourism.

Siggeir’s town was approached by a German engineering company with this large scale project in mind. “When this idea was starting, are you able to say then, ‘No I do not want it.’ And say, also, ‘I do not want more different work here for our kids.’ Are you able to take that decision, in the beginning? Are you against any changing, whatever it is?”

“Would you miss it as it is now?”

“Of course”
