Everything has been going really well. The Snorris first language lesson was on Tuesday and they have intense lessons every morning. The Icelandic teacher, Sigurborg, tells me that she is really happy with the group "they are positive and polite" she says.
On Tuesday afternoon they went on a scavenger hunt with the Nordjobbers (Nordic youth who are here from all the other Nordic countries). They had an hour and a half to run around the downtown area and take pictures. Tomorrow night, on a night called Icelandic Night, we will have a slide show - 10 pictures per team and we will choose a winner. This will go well with the sheep head, rotten shark, harðfiskur, skyr and sheep head jam :)
It's been an amazing week and I think I can safely say that on everybody's behalf: climbing to the top of Mt. Esja (half the group made it all the way), reception with board members and sponsors on Friday, river rafting on Saturday and Iceland's National Day, June 17, yesterday and today, a lecture on nature and a visit to the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science.
Tonight everybody was invited to have dinner with board members of the INL-Iceland and the Snorri Foundation, 2-3 per family. I'm sure they all had fun!
Another 4 days before everybody travels to his/her family.....
