... Once I learned to keep my head low, the ride got better!
So after a bumpy, winding journey, we reach Fakasel. This is a pretty neat place where we were able to go in and do a bit of shopping and have some great ice-cream coated in chocolate and caramel! They had some cool Icelandic stuff like sweaters and souvenirs for sale. We even spent some time outside admiring some horses and walking around a bit. Everywhere you look around here you see ...

It is stunning and architecturally brilliant but as with most of the city, modern.... Designed in the late 30's and finished in the 80's. the design was apparently there to represent the lava flows. We sneaked a peek inside and then headed through the shopping district to the gardens and frozen lake in the centre. We saw the geese landing in ...
