Streets of Seispri

Central Seispri is full of switchbacks, alleys and tunnels.

Seispri is one of the older neighbourhoods in Lola. It is situated on the hills above the historic capital of Reykjavic, and retains its medieval character and chaotic, vernacular architecture. It feels lived-in and worn from a thousand years of commerce.

It used to be an upmarket neighbourhood, prior to the Atomic War in 1995. Today it is tired and cramped, after its slipshod reconstruction in the early postwar years. Seispri has a large community of immigrant Jews from Southern Europe, and has large populations of Greeks and Albanians too. They give this old place new life and character.

To Tzipora, Seispri was her home. Vekllei did not spend much time thinking about the past these days. This moment lived for the future.
