As the economic crisis festers in Iceland, it's starting to affect it's neighbors. This week, Nasdaq's news wire reports that Polish workers are leaving Iceland. Between 10,000 and 15,000 Polish people were working in Iceland, and sending much of their money back to their home country.

But the Icelandic Kroner is worthless on the international market, so the Polish workers are moving on. And where are they going? The Faroe Islands. Not all of them, of course, but some.

The Nasdaq story says there may be construction work for the Poles in the Faroes. Fair enough.
If the Poles fly into the Faroes, perhaps the'll see scenes like the two above. They're taken from a series of areal photos from the Atlantic Airways website. They've got a massive gallery of pictures taken above most villages in the Faroes. The upper photo is of the dramatic coast of Mykines, and the lower photo comes from Torshavn.

So anyway, there's a lot of good images on the site. You should check it out.
