At 5.30 this morning I started driving to Keflavík International Airport, with the Snorri Program sign in my bag of course. Snorris were coming in on 3 different Icelandair flights: Minneapolis, Seattle and Toronto. Alexandra came through first, then Wyatt (SEA), Bethany (MSP), Amanda and Julie (SEA as well). We had to wait a bit for the rest of the Toronto crowd and I was getting a little bit worried when they finally came around 8.30 AM. At 8.45 there was no sign of our last participant, Kelsey, arriving. I then found her at the lost luggage desk and we finally got going around 8.00 AM and checked in at Guesthouse Óðinn at around 9 AM.
Everyone seems happy, tired, but excited - and so am I!
At 3 PM we are going to the Culture House to explore the old manuscripts and then I will give an orientation at the Nordic Association office before we have our first dinner together at the Seafood Grill ..... mmmmm.....
Icelandic class starts at 9 AM tomorrow morning - Koma svo, allir læra íslensku!
