While typing up my last post, I failed to remember that it was Icelandic National Day, the day the Icelanders celebrate their independence from Denmark and the founding of the Icelandic Republic on June 17th, 1944. I went downtown to try to find lunch, and I found the streets of Reykjavík more crowded than I’ve ever seen them before (which is to say, crowded).
So here are a few pictures from the shindig.
It seems none of these pictures really convey how crowded it was.
Here you can see the University in the background.
So there you go. We’ll return to pictures of the Westfjords trip in the next post.
Thanks for reading.
