It's not bad with a real bed. Not to mention a pillow. It is an 8-bed dormitory. There are some nice Finns I talked to yesterday. And an Italian who hitch hikes. Otherwise they are strange. There is a Spaniard who has been lying watching movies on his computer from the moment he arrived.
I wake up once in the night and I hear voices. First, I think it's outside, but realize that it's not. And a little later I can hear it's a movie. There is - you don't believe it - someone who is watching movies in the middle of the night - WITHOUT headphones.
After I had tried - as quietly as possible - to address the person, I heard the breathing. The person was sleeping. I crawled down from the upper berth and walked over and shook her. Twice. It was a deep sleep. Then I turned it off and went up and slept on. I'm probably the strange one ....?

Has now moved to the campsite. I have changed the plans a bit, now that I am used to the conditions and opportunities. Have downloaded Veđur's app to the mobile. Vedur is the Icelandic weather service.
The plan is still to drive the Kjölur route across the highlands. It's the one with bridges. But there is no reason doing it when it blows 7 m/s against. Not if you can avoid it. So I have consulted the weather forecasts cancelled the trip up to Siglufjörđur and around the peninsula.
And now I will spend the day sightseeing Akureyri. There would be some rain this afternoon. Let's see.....
It is predicted that it will rain at 16. At 15.30 we have the first drops. It was very accurate.
Then it should get better later and now at 18.30 I can see a couple of spots of blue skies. They are not stupid those weather prophets.
Alex, the girl from Utah, showed up and we talked a little. Politics. She had not been so happy about Obama, but now she missed him. She will go back to Reyjavik tomorrow. It was her birthday yesterday, and her father gave her 3 days at Hilton Rejkjavik as a gift.
The city is the second largest in Iceland. 17,000 inhabitants. It has a university that I was looking at. Well, not big. One building of 3-4 floors and some lower. It was summer vacation.
Wander around the city, which has large residential neighborhoods with very different houses. It seems that many of the new ones are wooden houses that eventually get a finish that make them look like brick houses?
Then the sun broke out
