Yesterday: Hallgrimskirkja

My plan was to do a sketch of the Boston city skyline last night for my "yesterday" prompt, as we had spent our first day in Reykjavik, Iceland. Turns out after not much sleep on our red-eye flight and then running around town all day I crashed out as soon as I showered after dinner.


So instead you get a quick loose pen sketch of Hallgrimskirkja, a large Lutheran church near the center of Reykjavik. Yes technically on Friday, but I am hoping to take advantage of being in GST for this one.

Pi Day: Reykjavik edition

So after searching Reykjavik for pie yesterday, we came up mostly empty. This was the closest thing we found:

We were hopeful to at least find someplace with meat pies after running across Iceland's unique twist on the tainted beef scandal story. And our guide suggested that the locals will call pie "cake" sometimes, which we tried investigating. (Nope we just found cake, although it seemed like it would have been tasty too.) Fear not though, tomorrow is another epicurean day, and we are planning on more interesting meals. We had to celebrate pi day somehow though!
