The week before I was gona start my company we had eruption in the active volcona Grímsvötn. And over one night everything turn into black. There was thick layer of ash on the glacier and it didn´t look good. I was very worried, nobody did know how long it was gona stay like that. I started, and thougt it would not work, but the costumers where all happy, it was special for them to walk on a glacier with some ash.
