Spent the day exploring Reykjavik. What an interesting city filled with surprisingly high quality stores, especially ones offering various creative works of local artisans. As you can see in our galleries, we spent quite some time photographing the new and very modern concert hall.
After dinner we went to a special event at the Blue Lagoon (about 45 min bus ride from Reykjavik). Once a year there is an organized hike over an old volcano near the Blue Lagoon, down through the geothermal power plant (biggest in Iceland), and on to the Blue Lagoon which they keep open until midnight - the only day of the year. It is a big event for Icelanders. We did not get back to our room until after 2 am (still twilight). Tired but very happy.
