Walking with the dead to promote the Walking Dead

In one of the more unusual and perhaps the most fun activities in my foreign service career, Mary and I joined a group of Icelandic zombies on a “walk” from the Hlemmur bus station to Bíó Paradís where we had a chance to watch the first chapter of the third season of “The Walking Dead” a highly successful American television series.

We partnered with SkjárEinn, cable television provider of the show, and Bíó Paradís to put together this event for a group of young Icelandic zombies. We even provided prizes and awards for the most authentic zombie participants. This is a new type of diplomacy.
