Church through the trees and across the pond

So we had the whole day free to explore downtown Reykjavik. We started off at the Pond, we walked up to Halgrimskirkja to see the view from the 8th floor. We came back down and walked around to the oldest street in Reykjavik. We were wandering towards the City Hall when a man saw us looking at our map and came over to ask what we were looking for. We said we weren't quite sure, so he took his lunch break to give us a walking tour of the center ! He asked where we were from, we said NY & he said then why are you here ???? LOL His son is in school in NY & he had gone no less than 18 times to see concerts ! He had all the ticket stubs of the concerts he had been to & took them out to show us ! He had a rolling stones ticket stub that only cost him $28 ! It was such a great tour, he brought us in to the town hall and showed us the topographical map, told us stories about each area, took us to this old cemetery and told us stories about a few of the peopel buried there. He was the best tour guide !
