Last week Madi asked, "How many pictures did you take?" The answer is not 87 million, it is 1998. For me that is not too many in 10 days. I love photography, but I am working on not just seeing the world through the lens of my camera.
Easy asked if the tiny blue dot by the cave was the Man. Yep, it was. It was one heck of a cave. Easy also asked if we could say the names of the places we visited. No we couldn't. We sort of made up our own names or waited for the GPS to say them.
Today we are leaving nature and going into where we started our trip, in and around Reykjavik. About 200,000 of the 325, 000 island residents live in this area. For the island, it is a big city. It was a clean city, but I didn't fall in love with it. I fell in love with the country away from the city.
Here are a few of the highlights from this area:
|A sign we could read|
|The cemetery. I love visiting cemeteries, especially in other countries. It shows how death is viewed|
|At the harbour|
|One of the statues in a statue garden|
|Because the name Loki always makes me smile|
|Outside Hallgrimskirkja Church|
|The organist in the church|
|The city from above|
|More looking down|
|In the botanical gardens|
|A dance with a handsome stranger!|
|This little museum that every book etc. said should be open but wasn't! It made us laugh a lot|
Next week will be my last post on this trip. We will go back to maybe where we should have started, with the Vikings. Because without them, there would be no Iceland.
