adventures with bárðarbunga: reykjavík landmarks

A year or two ago, my friend Hannah stopped over in Iceland on her way back to the States from England, and she brought me a a few treats: a Prince Polo bar, a cute little puffin postcard, and a tiny little knitted volcano she made herself.  At the time, I thought it would be cool to take photos of him if/when I ever returned to Iceland.  Well, friends, the time has come.  Named Bárðarbunga (Bunga Bunga for short) in honor of recent volcanic activity, he is my little co-explorer on this great adventure of living in Iceland.  Over the past few weeks, he has enjoyed exploring Reykjavík.  Sadly, I forgot to take him with me yesterday on a trip around the Golden Circle.  Anyway, you can check the news to find out what The Bárðarbunga is up to, and you can check here to find out what Little Bárðarbunga has been up to.

In our first installment of Adventures with Bárðarbunga, our little eldfjall explores a few Reykjavík landmarks.

Even though Bunga is an educated little volcano and knows that "Krap" is a slushie (like a Slurpie in the US), he still can't help but giggle when he sees Krap cups lying around. (Just to clarify, Bunga does not endorse littering, but he does endorse laughing at litter when the litter is hilarious.)
