Lækjarbrekka was really, super nice. I felt very fancy, and like I had to be on my best behavior as I took in the ambiance and wrote in my notebook. It was decorated very festively, since it was December. My favorite color is red, so I was fairly bursting with glee at the red table cloth, red candles, and so on.

Sitting next to me was a British couple, whose relationship, I’m sure, was exceptionally platonic. They were quite straight, and mostly ate in silence, communicating only in short comments in between checking their iPhones. It was a funny to me, seeing these two guys out at a fancy, romantic restaurant. I’m sure they were just friends taking a trip together for fun, which isn’t strange, but it still looked kind of funny to me.
