Margrét and I went out on the town yesterday, and I saw most of downtown Reykjavík. The city reminds me of Anchorage, in that it’s a larger city, but kind of more of a town, out away from everything else, and the light is the same in the time of year. As Iceland is so far west in the time zone, and we’re so north, the sun goes down about 3 or 4 in the morning, and then comes up around 5 or 6.
We went out and had pizza. We each had a person pizza and a bottle of beer. The pizzas were IsKR1500 each, which is about US$25 and the beers were IsKR500, about US$9. We walked around and say the Althingi, which is the parlament, and the city hall of Reykjavík, which is bigger than the parlament. After that, we went to a bar and I had a great piece of chocolate cake, which was IsKR650, or about US$10.50. Yes, Iceland is expensive!
It´s a beautiful day outside, and it might be in the 60´s and sunny, so we´re going to have a great day traveling. We´ve already got plans to get together with her friends tonight and go to the Blue Lagoon tomorrow. As Margrét has a camera, I might be able to post pictures with this. My pictures will have to wait until I get back.
I also might splurge on an Icelandic Sweater while I´m here.
