Then we went to see the Parliament house (which we found unappealing) and as some kind of amusement, someone had written a poem in the ground. From there, we went walking towards Adælstræti, the oldest street in Reykjavik and on our way we found some old Viking tombstones in a park. On Adælstræti we shopped a little more (I bought ice cubes made of Icelandic granite!) and got completely lost looking for the bus station: we wanted to spend the afternoon in the Blue Lagoon (we ended up going to a similar place close to Myvatn, the Myvatn Nature Baths a week later).
When we got hungry we went down to the harbour and ate some Icelandic hot dogs called pylsur (read here my recipe for homemade pylsur) in the best and oldest place to eat them, just by the harbour. I have also written a post about Icelandic food for foreigners.
