... from a beef fillet steak. Of course, part of the reason it was so nice was probably because we knew it was something that, according to about 150 countries in the world, we should not be eating. But if those people tried it, they would change their mind, I'm sure of it. We also had a hot-dog. Not that impressive right? Perhaps, but this place prides itself on being the best Hot-Dog in Iceland, and strangely enough, Bill Clinton actually visited it. ...

... we were only passing through, we asked, "What can we see from the Reykjavik airport?" "Oh!" Chirped the stewardess. You can see lava, and moss.

And here I thought flying into Iceland we would see a vast white tundra.

Bought tremendously expensive provisions on the plane. Wine and a Cesar salad. As painful as the bill was, it was still worth it. My bag of beef jerky inadvertently ended up in our checked luggage. A note on my food ...
