Half day tour in Reykjavik

It was pouring rain...again! So, didn't get to see much but there's not that much to see in Reykjavik anyway, right? Anything to make me feel better. The next time we'll go when the weather is better. You just don't fancy walking around in the rain to much. We didn't really have time to check out the nightlife either as our flight was at 7am the next morning and it was about a 45 minutes ride from Reykjavik to Keflavik.
All we got up to was to see Hallgrimskirkja and what a magnificent sight that is! It's a beautiful church. It reminded me of Svartifoss. The church looks like it has been built out of basalt. It is very beautiful inside as well and you can get a lift up on top, with a great view over Reykyavik!
After that we went to the Blue Lagoon.
After that we went back to Reykyavik. We were supposed to meet Bragi, who gave us bucketloads of advice on the Lonely Planet forum and we wanted to get a bite to eat. We asked the hotel for recommendations but the place that was highly recommended was totally booked out. We have found a little restaurant that served pasta dishes and it was excellent! After that we went to the Dubliner to meet Bragi. Don't start me on irish bars...it was Bragi's idea ;) He didn't turn up as he got caught at work. We stayed for one drink, Isk 1000 for a pint and a glass of beer (approx €12!!!). And I thought Dublin was expensive, how could you afford a night out in Reykyavik? After that it was off to bed with us. I wish we would have had more time in Reykyavik, definitely the next time.
