Back online in Reykjavík

After our four day visit to the former fishing village of Hellnar on Snaefellsnes Peninsula (West-Iceland), we are back online in Iceland’s largest city.  We’re staying in the home of a family, the mother of which leads tours on glaciers for fun – when they have guests in their home, they just go on a trip.  Posted some pictures to the right – click for the whole album.  Kids will post something tonight.

Paris Metro and homework

We wandered around the Metro system yesterday and made a visit to the Eiffel Tower.  Figuring out that long distance walking is going to be a challenge with the kids.  After a couple of meals at streetside cafes, we changed things up and had a nice Thai dinner.  Mornings so far are spent with dad running out for fresh croissants, pain au chocolat and les ouefs, and mom starting the homework.  Math facts seem to be unpopular first thing in the morning, but we’re plowing through.  Also using Khan Academy for some history lessons on the French Revolution – which is more than a refresher for me too.

This image says it all.

Czech out some new pictures

Albums are on the lower right (below the 6 random pictures).  Our Czech pictures are here.  Today is our last day in Prague, then we head NE to Turnov.

The beer is cheap and the bars plentiful here, so the article below is no surprise.
