... were very patient with everyone wanting to get close enough to touch them and get a good look.

After the show, we had dinner there, at Fakasel. Dinner consisted of smoked lamb and beets followed by a thick fish soup and bread. This of course had to be followed by cheesecake and coffee! It was all different and most definitely delicious! I have never had lamb that tastes this good, no gaminess or anything!

Given the length of this day/days, ...

... warmly, just walk through. It was a great historical provincial museum set in an old warehouse/movie theatre, lots of good exhibits, plenty to do with fishing obviously but good social history as well.

... jarins Beztu Pylsur, which had the perfect snap.  The crispy garlic also gave it a nice crunch.  We took a long, much needed nap. It was hard to sleep on the plane. Next time no exit row on Icelandair because the seats don't recline! We ventured out to an Icelandic bar called Islenzki Barinn.

... day wandering , lots of walking!! Also checked out the local hot pools! Soaked in the hot tub for a good while! Nothing like sitting in a hot tub with snow falling on your head! The hot pools are cheaper than getting a slice of pizza and a soda! ;) Hoping to do a tour tomorrow to see more, depends on the weather though! Friday I'm heading to the Blue Lagoon! I'm super excited for that! ( Google it!) All for ...
