We had a nominal sleep in this morning - breakfast at 8am. I've still not recovered enough sleep though & feel very flat with no energy.
We drove out to a rock arch that most people seemed to be going gaga over. Except me. Lunch was a stop in the small and picturesque fishing village of Húsavík (hoos-a-veek), which we had an hour to wander around. Even that was hard work.
Our accommodation is in Myvatn (Me-vak), where a film crew is here for a month filming another Fast & Furious movie. This has mean us being booted out of our hotel and we've been relocated to some guest cottages further around the lake.
The film crew has also commandeered the section of the lake that we wanted to photograph. We drove past the film site but couldn’t really see much other than trailer city; some tanks, APVs and trucks and one very flash looking red/orange car. It was too far to be able to photograph or identify it and security would have shooed us on anyway. We stopped further up the road and shot some images from a distance..
This thermal area smells just like Rotorua. The cold water here is pure but the hot water has been heated by geothermal power and smells very sulphurous.
It has been unseasonably warm with temperatures around +5 and even +15 in some places, so we have not been able to do the glacier/ice crave trip as it is too dangerous.
