So what have I been doing for the past few days? Well, getting settled in yada yada yada. When I first arrived I met two Americans, one of whom had already been to Reykjavík before. So we went into the downtown area to Laugevegur (Washing Street; Saturday in Icelandic is Laugardagur, Washing Day) and to Bonús, the discount supermarket (its symbol is a really, in the words of one of the Americans, demented pig. picture coming soon). Then we headed down to the Old Harbour, which was very nice. The thing I like most about the supermarket so far is that there aren't rows just for candy and granola bars and those types of junk food.
In the evening, I went to a (free!) jazz concert with two girls from Germany and Denmark. It was part of the Reykjavik Jazz Festival. The musicians were good but I didn´t even get a chance to see what they looked like since we got there late. It was raining quite hard so we left early and went into the comforts of dorm beds.
