The fruits of our labor. An epic trip to Akureyri, which is only about 45 minutes away. It involved two boat rides and two times hitching rides with strangers. And of course, celebrating Easter for an entire week is not enough for Iceland, they had to tack on Easter Monday, which was the day we chose to make our trip to the city. Most everything was closed...Iceland!

I'd never been so excited to be in an actual grocery store before. I believe the phrase is "a kid in a candy shop." Installation in the Akureyri art museum which was actually open on Easter Monday. Unfortunately I didn't get the name of the artist. I guess this is an international trend. Oh yeah, so this is where we are staying. Not the best photo but whatever. Took the camera out for some long exposures the night of our first snow. What's that in the top left? A trick of the light or a hidden person flying off to the magic mountain? I think we all know the answer to that.
