Here's just a tiny fraction of the pictures I want to show you (because otherwise, I'll spend the whole night blogging):
|A view of downtown Reykjavík from the tower of Hallgrímskirkja, Iceland's tallest building.|
|With houses that look like these...|
|and these... I don't understand why so many of the houses in my country are so colorless!|
|Here are a few scenes of things I liked around town…|
|...places that are lived in.|
|A window at street level.|
| If you've been around my blog for a while, you know|
how much I love buildings that show signs of past lives...
|Hallgrímskirkja is visible from lots of spots all over town.|
|This is why I didn't go into business.|
| In the Reykjavík Kirkjugarður (graveyard), I made a friend. By the time we parted,|
I was covered with cat fur. That's okay – maybe it provided an extra layer of warmth.
(By New England standards, it's proper winter here!)
|I saw these BONKERS rings in a shop window.|
| Can you imagine wearing|
this on your finger?
And thus, my dear readers, my location is revealed: I'm in Iceland. I'm writing, sightseeing, exploring… and eventually, weather permitting, driving counterclockwise along the coast to Akureyri. I hope I'll have time to share pictures all along the way!
