Reykjavik 101

We have arrived in Iceland! The title is the name of a movie you are supposed to watch before coming to Iceland (we didn't). These are all photos of Reykjavik. The church above is in the center of town, our hotel had a view of it, quite nice! Reykjavik was pretty great. It seemed much like many northern European towns; clean, well-organized, friendly people that speak English better than I do, etc. It is a bit pricey, but luckily we live in NYC so the cost of things seems pretty equivalent to what we're used to paying. We spent two days wandering around, going to museums, and checking out bars and restaurants. The harbor. These are all from the top of the tower in the first picture. The love knitting in Iceland. So much so that they make sweaters to keep their trees warm all winter! Like many Euro cities, there's great street art. Luckily, I'm not going to show you much of it today. This is just a close up of what I can't really call anything other than a graffiti pit. I mean, why half ass something? If you're going to be a stoner, why not be passionate about it? This is an installation in one of the art museums. I can only assume that is a tornado of urine. The text did not confirm or deny this although it did inform us that the tornado could be viewed from four sides which was very helpful as I am used to viewing and moving around in only two dimensions. Good night Reykjavik!
