Viking Cruise - Page 8


iceland
on her way
As soon as we docked in Reykjavik, Iceland, we got on a shuttle bus to the downtown area. Mom has just finished with the tourist information center and is ready to go. 
It is early in the morning and Icelanders don't get up as early as us so most of the people on the street are from our ship.
little house
strange man
Sometimes in walking down a street full of stores, you might see an alley that leads to a small red house trimmed in white. This is behind the facade of stores.
Mom is trying to make friends with this old viking in front of the store, but she does not pay any attention to the little guy in the store trying to take her picture.
Church
the dock
The Church at the end of the street is Hallgrimskirkja and is the tallest building in  Iceland. It stands way above the other buildings. It is a Lutheran parish church. 
After our morning stroll in Reykjavik, we went for a tour of the Ring of Fire in Iceland. Our first stop was at a power generation station.  The steam comes from the ground in an abundant supply so that they just have to connect it to a turbine to generate energy, then the waste steam can be used for heat.
