Our Neighbourhood

This part of Reykjavik (Vesturbærinn) is grown and respectable. Apartments are expensive and it's easy to understand why people get so attached to this part of the capital.  It's like a village of its own, still only 10 minutes walk from the city center.  You could say everything is close to our apartment. Grocery store, bakery, hair saloon, church, swimming pool (the best one), football ground, playgrounds, coast, book store; all within 5 minutes walking.  Our street is extremely quiet with hardly no traffic at all. 1 min walk to the beach. There is a very nice playground just behind our house.
