On Saturday, October 16th we met at the lovely home of Bill and Lilli Tragos to listen to UCSB Professor Aposolos Athanassakis. It was a cool & drizzly day, perfect for being cozy indoors.

I can't begin to give a recount of the extensive history behind the talk but I will say that I was most impressed of the road to his passion. His enthusiasm and love of Icelandic history, poetry, and sagas was intoxicating. I know I would love to find a passion to pursue in the way that the Scandinavian lands did for Prof. Athanassakis.

The refreshments for the ASF event was once again most scrumptious with homemade goodies from several people...Lilli, Vibeke, Evelyne, & Cindy. It was difficult to pull away from all these goodies but we had another chance after the program ended.
