I accidentally left my camera at home for this Dalai Lama meeting at Xan’s university. Luckily, there was a girl there with a camera that agreed to e-mail me some of the pictures and videos she took. It might take a day or two or ten… I don’t know her at all… but my Dalai Lama post will come.
In the meantime, here’s the fun we had on Monday! Considering it was a holiday and that most people had the day off, we all decided to go out and enjoy the day. We started off by going to the tasty restaurant, American Style, where Malianna and I critiqued just how American the food was. Our verdict was that the atmosphere was very American but the hamburgers were nothing like our tasty American hamburgers. They were very good Icelandic burgers though!
Gunnar decided to sport a classic American look for the camera. 🙂
Oscar and Johannes here are posing. Malianna was a ways back and we decided to try to scare her, so we all hid a little ways off the path. Problem: after a couple minutes, there was still no sight of her. While a few went to look for her, the rest stayed behind and posed. LOL. Malianna was quickly found, being prone to wonder off a bit but never getting lost.
We then all hopped back in the car and they headed for the pool while I headed back to take a quick nap before dinner. President Olafson was here from Denmark and we were all having dinner at the Koyle´s. He got to meet with the Dalai Lama with 13 other religious leaders in the Iceland area.
He brought a treat with him. The church lent him a copy of the Joseph Smith movie that they show in the Joseph Smith Memorial building in Salt Lake. It is such a fantastic movie and many testimonies were strengthened. Thanks President Olafson!
