We would all meet up later that night for dinner @ the Seafood Market restaurant. Only one artisan store in, Jen & Brad lost Carol. We had went upstairs in the store for a brief ...

Such a Landscape!

... ham and cheese panini, and very friendly staff. Did you know that Icelandic children start learning English at age 9? And thank God for that! b/c we can't understand a word of Icelandic!
