I'm flashing back to August 1993 when I visited my friend in Iceland. At that time the exchange rate was $72 ISK (króna) =$1 USD. Since the weather first day was good we went to Thingvellir, Iceland where I saw a geyser. I was so overcome by its beauty and experience that it brought me to tears. Am sure only having maybe 2 ½ hours sleep in 24 hours had something to do with my emotions.
brother's last name is Leifson. Interesting, eh?
volcano sights where she said orchestras will hold events in the belly of the volcano since the acoustics are so good. Cannot recall the name of that particular volcano and don't ask me how they get themselves and equipment down there.
Reykjavik about 11 p.m. when it was just getting dark. By the way, Iceland has those seasons where there is 24 hour daylight and those seasons where it is 24 hours of darkness.
Iceland has a President to run their country and in 1993 it was Vigdis Finnbogadottir. You can tell by the surname the President was a woman. Not sure about today but in 1993 you could drive straight up to the President's residence (Bessastadir) and had no guards or high fencing. This photo is just a small portion of the landscape.
Reykjavik so did some shopping. The is the corner of the street where Katla lives and I took the left there and headed toward the body of water. Then walked the town to check out the stores.
Hallgrimskirkja Church and if you look closely you will see in the foreground is a Leif Erickson statue.
I took the lift up 7 flights then climbed the 4 circular flights to the top and took pictures of the city of Reykjavik and country side. In 1993 that lift cost 200 ISK (króna), or about $2.80 USD. Below is the church inside.
Marxist style culture has risen in America to cancel our history.
Goðafoss (foss means falls).
leaning over the boat ramp drawing fresh water to heat up for washing dishes.
I might pull a few loops on my "Pride, Honor and Freedom" rug but later this afternoon will put it aside and do some binding on Bespectacled Lion so I can post a photo of it all finished.
