Woman eats hákarl instead of jumping out of a plane . . .

. . . and wishes she had opted to jump out of a plane.
First time I laughed all day, so I thought I would share.
We came back last week from a very interesting trip to Iceland ( and Greenland). As part of the planned itinerary we had visited a Shark meat processing place.
We were encouraged to not only dip the fermented and cured Shark meat into Angelica infused Schnaps, we also washed it down with that and ate small cubes of dark bread. Actually it didn't taste THAT bad this way. I could imagine that after a few of those, this stuff starts to look pretty good and the Schnaps makes for lively entertainment during family get-togethers .....:-)
We were told the cured Shark meat sells for about 80 $/kg, not a cheap item.
