10.09.2009 Iceland‧§ Day 17 § Þórsmörk & Hvolsvollur

It was gloomy in the morning and it started raining heavily near noon. We were completely wet when we back to Þórsmörk hostel. We were hoping to walk to a particular place but we were lost on the way, so we had no choice but to walk back. (We ran out of time anyway) 拍攝器材:Pentax espio mini + 過期 2 年的 Fuji Reala 100 拍攝器材:Contax T2 + 過期 3 年的 Jessops 200 There was an interesting incident happened when we took the bus - there were not enough seats for all the passagers! So the bus driver had borrowed several chairs from the restaurant of the hostel and put them in the corridor in the bus, haha. When we got to Hvolsvollur, it was raining cats and dogs, and the taxi we had booked was waiting for us already. After we got on the taxi, the taxi driver, Jon, said that the airport might have been closed because of the weather! We were very shocked and he then helped us to ring the airport about this matter. And the airport was indeed closed for the weather. Jon then drove us back to the gas station in Hvolsvollur and I went out to ask the guesthouse which we stayed at a few days ago if they still had rooms available. There was room, luckily. I was completely wet again when I back to the gas station. Then my sister told me that one of the villager, David, just heard about our situation and he kindly offered us to stay at his landlady's house (He was renting a room from a landlady and there was still room available in the house). So we took the offer. It was a very warm and nice house, and so as the room. The landlady could not speak English but she was very kind and had offered us some Chinese tea. She actually owned some farms and sheep and horses! Later, I rang the hostel in Heimaey to explained to them our situation and cancel our booking. At night, we had quite a long and interesting chat with David. I must say Icelandic are very knowledgeable about what's going on in the world, without bias. (I think the Icelandic government has not controlled the media) 拍攝器材:Pentax espio mini + 過期 2 年的 Fuji Reala 100
