These guys were following me across the bridge
Christina wanted to sleep in today, and had booked a massage at the public pool, so I went into town by myself. I was late for the bus, the driver saw me running and stopped traffic and waited for me, so nice ! I get off at the pond, walk around and head into the National Gallery of Iceland. I spend some time here lookign at all the art (it was a small museum). Next I head over to the pond to feed the geese, ducks & swans... bad idea because they started following me ! I thought I was going to have a "Birds" situation, but fortunately someone else showed up to feed them and they got bored of me :o)  I had a walking tour in my book, so I kind of did a modified version of it. I walked all over !! I headed up to see a catholic church, then down to the harbor to see the viking ship sculpture (which I didn't take a picture of because it was sooo cold near the harbor, I just stopped to see it) then over to the house where Gorbachev & Reagan met to effectively end the cold war, I walked up to another Art museum (I will come back to this journal entry with the names of everything, got to find them in my book).
I walked down the main shopping street and wandered in and out of shops. I stopped in the supermarket to get some fish to make for dinner, then headed back to the bus to head home to the hostel because I had to meet Christina at 5. I made dinner, watched part of Wall-E with some hostel mates, then we got ready to go out and experience Reykjavik night life. We had intentions to go to 5 different places that night, but we started at Cafe Cultura, ran into the Italian guys from the waterfall the day before and ended up staying here all night !
