2012, AUGUST 31: ICELAND, REYKJAVIK
Today we had Oregon weather in Reykjavik. It was breezy
and drizzled most of the day. We decided to explore the area around our hotel,
and got wet in the process.
The only place of tourist interest we saw was the Hofdi House where the all-important summit between President Ronald Reagan and Secretary General Mikhail Gorbachev was held in 1986.

Then we explored area around the harbor, and...
...admired some of the city's architectural marvels.
While most of the city's buildings appear plain, its graffiti is as colorful as some of its houses.
Back at our hotel, we decided to take a city tour by the Hop On/Hop Off double-deck bus, and visit a few of the sights. From the Travel Agent at our hotel we bought our tickets.
On our outing today we observed that some businesses had “adorned” open areas around them with “fields of rocks,” true to the adage, “If God gives you lemons, make lemonade!”
