Paint the Town Red. And Blue. And Yellow. And Green.
If I could pick one word to describe Reykjavik it definitely would be "quirky" - in a great way. Icelanders living in the capitol city have created a wonderful sense of whimsy throughout the town, and you'll see many blocks like this with eye-popping splashes of color and fanciful murals.
I don't know if it's to offset the gloomy winter days or for some other reason, but Reykjavik residents seem determined to fill their town with color, charm, and whimsy - sure to make you smile even on the most frigid, overcast day. They took the idea of painting the town red to a whole new level!
