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



dramatic,



strong contrasts



about 20 miles south of reykjavik


in a small coastal town called


nyardvik


we visted the islenkgur


a full viking ship replica


pretty cool stuff
