Anyways, you can see in one of the pictures I upload what I had for breakfast
The next two pictures are of some art work outside the airport. The first one of the silver egg thing, was really huge and I've been debating whether or not it a seed or an egg. The second is the other end of the rainbow and it is absolutely beautiful. The next picture is of our faithful bus, that we shall be traveling in over the next month. After boarding the bus, we drove past downtown Reykjavik on our way to where I am presently in Skálholt. On the way, we saw plenty of lava fields, as well as the trolls that were turned to stone because they got caught in the sunlight.
After eating a wonderful lunch (cauliflower soup, salad and bread) once we arrived in Skálholt at about 12 o'clock, we got settled in our rooms, which you can see from my pictures. We then took a walk to see the horses that are owned by a local and some hot springs. The horses were all very friendly and enjoyed several treats that people brought to give them. After visiting them for a while we continued on down the road to the hot springs. They were really warm, which was great since it was decently cold outside and it had been raining. I was able to step on some of the rocks and could feel the heat up through my shoes and socks. Dinner this evening was also very enjoyable. I feel like I'm eating really healthy foods which makes me incredibly happy. I'll try and post again soon.
Also note that I'll try and get on Skype tomorrow(Sunday) evening. I haven't the slightest idea what time at this point but when I do get on, I'll stay on for awhile. Till then. ^__________^
