... Circle tour, heading back in the direction from which we came yesterday. We pass through a village that has more hot springs than any other in Iceland. The earth's crust is so thin here, only single storey buildings are erected and they don't have any cellars. Kristberg tells us all about the lakes, rivers and mountains as we pass by including all their unpronounceable names. It's a fascinating tale all the same.

We landed in Keflavik airport, about 45 minutes south of Reykjavik proper, a few minutes late but otherwise uneventfully. This is our first experience with Iceland, a place where 30% of the residents have college degrees and 50% believe in elves. I wonder how much those groups overlap?
