Next year v;e may take ad- vantage of the tour office again or head out on our own in this beau- tiful and rugged country. Of course Reykjavik, capital of Iceland and a major city of more than 80,000 people, is the city we visited on our orientation tour. This city is a center for culture and entertainment and can provide many hours of activity for those interested in pursuing their interests in this country. Thingvellir is east of Reykjavik and the oldest parliament in the world, Althing, was founded there. Thingvallavatn is the largest lake in Iceland. Hvalfjordur is a fjord between Reykjavik and Akranes, a fishing port north of this nation's capital. This fjord is the home of Iceland's single whaling station. Other places of interest are: Heidmork, a public park east of Reykjavik; Gullfoss, a beautiful waterfall; Skalholt; Laugarvatn; Dyrholaey; Skogafoss; Skogar; Sand- gerdi, and many other sights both near and far from Keflavik.
