Iceland, Day 9
(Again, that's day 9 of the trip, which is day 2 of Iceland.)
We spent the whole day wandering around Reykjavik, which is such a neat city. It's a perfect halfway point between Paris and home, I think. Everyone speaks English (but among themselves, they spoke Icelandic), stores let you use their bathrooms whether you buy anything or not, all the housing we saw was apartments... etc.
|Yup, that's an internet meme in a sushi ad in Iceland.|
|If I'm not mistaken, that's the Arctic Ocean.|
|Still think that's the Arctic Ocean.|
|And that is a Lebowski Bar.|
|Street art is awesome in Reykjavik! (To be fair, it's also awesome in Paris.)|
|Viking boat statue|
|The road is blocked to cars in several spots with these neon bike gates.|
Also up and down this street were neon-painted benches and picnic tables.
Birk made me stay up til midnight so we could get this photo of the midnight sun:
|The color is almost exactly right; that's what the sky looks like at|
midnight in Reykjavik in July (8pm at home... I love that my phone
wanted to make sure I knew what time it was at home while I was roaming).
