While an ash cloud from a volcano under Iceland's Eyjafjallajokull glacier caused travel chaos in most of Europe, much of the country itself escaped unscratched.

With 130 volcanic mountains on the island, Icelanders seem to have accepted that the forces of nature are taking power from time to time.

Al Jazeera's David Chater reports from Iceland's south, where residents reacted to the latest eruption with calm and humour.
