Yesterday, matter won over mind and I spent most of the morning in bed trying to get rid of this cold I caught when I arrived. It’s fun trying to communicate with people who’s first language isn’t English when I’ve lost my voice. We still had an awesome day, though, and I’m convinced you can’t have a bad day in this country.
We started the afternoon driving into Selfoss for some lunch, where I had the best burger I’ve had in a long time, and walking out to see the Kerid Crater (first couple of pics). It was nice, but it’s a lot more colorful in the summer. That was just a stop to kill time while we were waiting to visit Egilsstaðakot, a sheep farm. I really love the people here. I sent an email to Thorsteinn Logi, the owner of the sheep farm, yesterday morning and received an email inviting us to visit that evening. We had such a great time and learned a bunch of stuff we didn’t know about sheep (or sheeps as they like to call them). Now, if I could only get a lamb past customs. : )
That wasn’t even the best part of the day! We weren’t expecting to see the Aurora due to the low forecasts for it this week, but we were so lucky to get to see it last night. I guess kissing the troll worked! I can’t describe how beautiful it is – I’ll let the photos do the talking.
