After taking my nap I figured I should stick up on snacks and drinks. We bundled up and just started walking to the right. The goal was to find a restaurant then a convenient store to from where we could purchase said snacks. The wind was ripping through us, and a cute Icelandic girl in sticking and cut-off denim shorts and no coat came walking in our direction. I stopped her for directions and she pointed us to the corner bus stop to get downtown to find a restaurant. On the walk there I saw a store that I believed to be convenient store. As we approached that is exactly what we'd happened upon. We bought yogurt, strawberries, and apple, an orange , Icelandic ramen noodles, apple juice and a huge bottle of water.
The cashier greeted me in full, fast, and fluent Icelandic. I giggled and was like "did you really think I was going to be able to respond in Icelandic?!" He grinned," but of course!" I immediately had a new friend and started my free Icelandic language lessons! Woohoo! We made a cute video that I'll put in the next post.
Once we got back to the bus stop that ms shorts in 30° pointed us to 45 minutes ago. I Hs to ask 3 teenage boys for help. How much is the bus? What stop do I get off at? Icelandic is wicked so they told me but I couldn't understand how to even spell it. The kids pointed it out for me on the bus schedule and taught me how to use it. A golden rule of travel: take pictures of maps and bus routes etc. it makes life 1000xs easier. So above is our route and here is our video.
