  Perlan - The Pearl of Reykjavik
by VZ-Pam

Its a nice walk to the top of the hill to see the Perlan.
Magnificant panoramic view of the city of Reykjavik, with a high class restaurant on the top floor & a cafe there, its very enjoyable to have a light lunch there .
there were sulptures outside of the building & when you went inside, you will see a Viking man inside a display box right by the entrance . Where is the Viking woman ? I just wonder .....

As I go out to take a view of the city & the mountains landscape, I wanted to sing "The hills are alive ~"

I did not sing because I know it will kill someone on the deck - somehow I know my voice would be the only thing to pollute this place & so I better not do that ...

Address: Öskjuhlíd Hill, Reykjavik
Directions: Top of the Öskjuhlíd hill, you will see it
