iceland : : old harbor reykjavik

enjoyed a stroll thru "old harbor"

while in reykjavik, iceland the last 10 days

we had a long friendly chat with Saedis

first shop owner in the old fishermen huts by the harbor

she, family and friends went about the formidable task

of cleaning 100 years of fish, nets and gut stink

phew..can you imagine????

like many icelanders, she welcomes guests by burning

candles by her doors

she was just as warm and friendly

these armbands are her design

if you walk to the harbor and look right

you'll see the new harpa international concert center

a bit of a view hog

dramatic contrast to the humble old harbor fishing huts

but thats what makes iceland so beautiful


strong contrasts

about 20 miles south of reykjavik

in a small coastal town called


we visted the islenkgur

a full viking ship replica

pretty cool stuff
