Buy Country Review

There is something charming about a place where a person can IM the lead singer of the country's biggest rock band. Where a person can read a story in the newspaper, send a text message to the Foreign Minister to voice an opinion, and actually get a personal reply. I'm well aware that there are drawbacks to living in a place where everyone is in everyone's business and it's impossible to run away and reinvent your self. But when you come from a place where people spend too much time sequestered in their cars or in small stucco fortresses, the Faroese model can look pretty attractive.
