We arrived in Reykjavik in the afternoon to find the airport being renovated. Great discussion with young Icelandic woman who accompanied us into town for the travel agency. Astonishing lava piles along the way. Spent two nights, so we had time to wander around some in the downtown part of this pretty, clean city.
Hallgrímskirkja took 34 years to build (1940-74). The concrete is shaped to resemble basalt columns, geological formations seen in many places in Iceland.
