Now Iceland celebrates the first day of summer .
Festivals all over the country ,and people enjoying the weather .
And the weather is great here in Reykjavik,sun and getting warmer .
I went to the big tower church in the center of Reykjavik and took a little video of the statue of Leif Eiricsson,the discoverer of the Americas in the year 1000. this statue is a gift from the USA goverment in 1930 - when Iceland was celebrating the 1000 year anniversary of the Icelandic Parliament - the oldest parliament in the world.
I also went to the beach in Reykjavik - and not many where there having fun
the video from the tower - there you can see the Glacier - Snaefellsglacier - and in the story by Jules Verne - Journey to the center of the earth --- the entrance was this glacier .
