Day 2 in Iceland

After getting the chance to sleep in we went around the island to see the Geothermal plant.

We got to enjoy a true Icelandic breakfast with cheeses, meats, and (of course) chilled fish. We then piled on the coach bus and headed out to the Svartsengi geothermic plant and saw how they were harnessing the power of water heated under the surface of the earth. We then stopped at a little mom and pop buffet and tried some of their fish which was really good. After the lunch we headed to a volcano and walked along the rim of the volcano. We weren´t able to swim in the Blue Lagoon cause of the price change so we went to a volcano for me. We then stopped to see a few hot springs and the ancient remains of a hot spring. When we got back to the hotel around 5ish and we were allowed to find dinner. Today was definately a lot shorter and easier to stay awake. Its only been a few days but its been GREAT!!!
