      They are very fine!

      Pahoe-hoe is Hawaiian, though, just for the record. It’s ropey surface lava. Very nice. Not much of it here where I live, as the glaciers gnawed most of it off… but lots in iceland, and lots in the south of my grassland, beyond the glacial margin.

        That’s why I clapped my hands, that here is an Icelandic name that I can pronounce without trying… Hawaiian names are very dancy, that explains this wonderful title for this kind of lava.

        The great thing about Icelandic names is that if you go there often enough they make sense at last!
