i heard you are trapped in iceland? be safe!
i can't even imagine what kinda present you found for me in iceland but i bet it's amazing!
Nawww. The volcano’s eruption is far to the east and the “debris is coarse” which sounds like a bad thing, but I guess it doesn’t linger in the atmosphere and disrupt air traffic. As of now I’ll be leaving for the airport in 30 minutes (it’s a 45 minute drive) and flying out in 3 1/2 hours.
I got you a present only you and I and lots of non-Americans can appreciate. I’ll be sending your house mail soon I hope!!!
We drove for an hour to see the smoke, it was pretty and we were really far away.
I realized during our excursion that my camera was acting really strangely, and that’s because IT WASN’T TAKING PHOTOS. I didn’t load the film right. All of my photos of Reykjavik are non-existant. I compensated by taking tons of pictures of rocks, which is easy on Rock Island. Ariel took a lot of pictures with her digital though, so I’ll have that.
I feel like I’ve been here a lot longer than I have, we didn’t get to do all we wanted to (didn’t realize you need an actual credit card to rent a car,) but I will be in London tomorrow and Paris on Tuesday and Venice on June 3rd, so one lost roll of film is okay.
I’m here now! Still not quite used to the time change. Right now Ariel and I are having the great debate of whether or not to spend $80 in gas to go see impressive things, or stay close to the city tomorrow. It doesn’t matter, pretty things are everywhere, there are only 2 hours of actual darkness right now. Flipping through the tour book to figure things out, I’d probably be happy in the grocery store for an hour, though.
