Reykjavik Day 2

A travel blog entry by sandy1948


... lovely and sweet young woman. So, we invited her to go to the show with us. We had a very fun night together, at the show, exploring the Harpa, and walking through the fun part of town.

It was a bit of a walk to Harpa, but easy enough and pleasant along the harbor. The show was very funny and the building is amazing and very controversial among Icelanders.

More on that tomorrow. ...

The genius who went inside the volcano

A travel blog entry by bartopreis

... inside the volcano so you can do the maths. Mad man or genius? They're often not that far from each other.
