Day 24, Reykjavik

Doing our pre-flight planning this morning, we learned that the weather forecast for most of Greenland was something other than favorable. The long and the short of it, we delayed our departure for 24 hours. On the positive side of it, this delay provided us with the opportunity to see Reykjavik. Reykjavik is a modern city with many interesting sites, walking along the harbor, it readily becomes apparent that Iceland has a large fishing industry. And yet again we came across a statue of Leif Eriksson, an inscription at the base of the statue reads: Son of Iceland, Discoverer of Vinland.

Great photos, Ras & Stein. Keep them coming!

This is Mariza back in the Seattle office having a reality attack ... trying to recover from jetlag and getting back down to terra ferma. After four passport control checkpoints in Oslo and again in NJ, long lines, kids crying, I thought "where oh where is that Twin Beech!!"

Hey Ras (& Stein),
It's been really cool to follow your journey since we met for happy hour in Seattle prior to your departure. Danes and friends of the Danes in Seattle are talking about you - and will be waiting to meet you back home soon.
God speed.
