As the headline on the I.N.N website reads, everything is "All is set for 'Rasslin'-n-Reykjavik'".Leaders from all over the world have arrived in Iceland for the arm wrestling match between The United States and Canada.
This photo shows President Bush and First Lady,Laura Bush stepping off Airforce One in Keflavik.We see Mrs. Bush wearing the traditional lei given to her upon her arrival in Iceland. Few people outside Iceland know that the custom of presenting leis to tourists was introduced to Hawaii by Icelander Leif Erikson on his first visit to Honolulu in 1001.
