A little slice of China

This house, which is situated at Njálsgata 33, is the headquarters of “Unnur’s China Club”, a travel agency specialising in tours to China. It also houses a museum dedicated to China.

I love the simplicity of how the owner, instead of heaping on the Chinese decorations, has just used these good luck knots to hint at what lies inside.

Counting down the days until Yule/Christmas: 22 days to go*

*To those not in the know/new to this site: Christmas in Iceland starts at 6 p.m. on December 24, and I don’t count the day the photo is posted.

I’m starting my annual Yule/Christmas countdown a day late, as I have been very busy lately and have only snapped a handful of shots of the holiday decorations. I will begin with a photo I took on Sunday while driving along Regent Street in London on the top of a sightseeing bus – really the best way of covering a lot of ground in the city in a short time. The rest of the holiday photos will be from Iceland.
