So I lost my newly-bought International Student Identification Card last night. I blame my shallow pant pockets for that, but I am really upset about it because until I get my student card, the only other ID I have on me is my passport.

Some other cultural oddities that I have noticed:
  • people don't carry umbrellas even when it rains really hard. I guess they just have to wait five minutes until it stops, like the saying goes
  • people wear 14 shades of grey and nothing else. That's bad news for me because all the clothes I brought are quite bright. I'll have to buy some to fit in with the dullness!
  • coffee shoppes cashiers write every single order down on a pad of paper.


Here's the crazy mascot pig of the supermarket I was talking about. Its eyes tell all.Here's the city hall. It stands on a pond.
Here's a picture of this thing called dialog. I don't know what it is; it just looks cool. Someone joked that these must be all the kids in Iceland that are up there on that wall. One of the pictures has a kid picking his nose.

I just realized that all the pictures I took of the city landscape are really ugly so you'll have to wait another day to see those!
