The Blue Lagoon

Hi again,
Here are what we did today. We went to to The Blue Lagoon..
Very nice bathing place but Kiwi stayed safe from the salt water (this is hot sea from the deep of the earth.)
It is winter here and it was rather windy so we had to be quick to take photos..

So this is the Blue Lagoon, the white stuff are some minirals (silica) from the water very good for the skin. But as Kiwi has so good skin he just watched us bathing.
Have a nice day,
Heidrun Hlin and Hermann Kári in Iceland.

Arrival in ICELAND!!!

Hi Christine
Here are my first photos when Kiwi got here in Iceland. We were so happy affter waiting so long for him.
We got him on the evening on the 21.02.2007. From Letja in the Netherlands.

He just got inspired to play chess with Hermann Kari (also a postcrosser) hemmi as Hermann is in now in a chess school.

We welcome Kiwi and hope he will enjoy the stay here.
Best wishes from all of us.
Heidrun Hlin and Hermann Kari

Kiwi and the Bears

Hi Mom,

So sorry for not writing so long. Letje has been so busy redecorating the house. But I'm OK, really, I had a great time overhere, helped painting and stuff. Got friends with the dogs and cat and saw lots of the neighbourhood. We have been shopping in a very large shop, man they had lots and lots of stuff down there. We have been to Ikea, where Letje bought some liquerice to send to you with Delila big sister. And I finally had my photo taken with some of the bears. Not all of them, there are so many. But the 2 on the photo I thought were really special. One is made out of a postagebag, Letje made this bear herself. Thought it was nice to have this bear next to me on the photo cause I'm travelling by mail :) The other bear is a whole other story. His name is Wombles, also made by Letje a few years ago. And he also has travelled around Europe. And everywhere he came Letje bought him a little souvenir to put on his jacket. He has also visited the apes on Gibraltar. Look at the little bag he is having with him, there is lots of stuff in there :)
Well Letje bought me some tiny woodenshoes, as a little souvenir she said. Love them :)
I will be on my way tomorrow Letje said, so I will be preparing myself for a trip to Iceland. It seems to be very cold outthere, I think I need some warm socks LOL

Bye for now, hope to arrive soon in Iceland

Kiwi ( and Letje)
