48 hours in Reykjavik.

It is 11:24 pm, the sun will set in 8 minutes and rise again at 3:20 in the am! freaky!

The temp is a 7 degrees (so about 44! A good day for a swim!

I had to sneak this photo today, no cameras allowed at the Vesturbæjarlaug Pool, one of the many thermal pools in the city. Here you swim and float in geo thermally headed lap pools, hot tubs and saunas. It was amazing!

This is a sculpture (i think) in the city square. One of the many pipes that is constantly spewing out geothermal heat! Thanks to all that lovely geothermal activity in Iceland, Reykjavik runs almost entirely on renewable energy. Electricity, hot water and heat is all gathered from geothermal resources and hydropower.

British artist Daniel Lismore had an opening of his body sculpture at the Harpa tonight. His work is rich and over the top, Very creative and inspirational.

A long morning walk to check out more of this quirky city, its architecture and landscape.

At 74.2 meters tall Hallgrimskirkja is the tallest building in Reykjavik and one of the most iconic structures of the city. Hallgrímskirkja took 41 years to build and its design was inspired by Icelandic nature.

Found the best bakery, hot cinnamon buns!

Delicious meal at Sumac: Roasted cauliflower with Pomegranate + almonds + cumin yogurt sauce, Grilled cucumber with Preserved lemon + sumac sauce + quinoa and Crispy baby potatoes with Chermoula + tomato purée + chives. Many restaurants are heavy on the seafood due to the relationship to the sea. Other traditional foods are puffin, shark and horsemen, none of which I will try.
