Through My Window: Week 16

2012-04-16 12.55

It was the incredibly good weather last week here in Reykjavik. There are only two seasons in Iceland according to the old customs – summer and winter. The First Day of Summer is a holiday and it was last Thursday. It is summer now officially in Iceland! The First day of Summer is a great festival for kids – they all get Summer gifts from their parents. Also there was Children Art Festival all over Reykjavik last week so we and our daughter had lots of fun there.
