Free Reykjavic Walks
There is an ex history student that runs a free walking tour of Reykjavik nearly every day from Lækjartorg Square. I can't link to him here but google it- definitely worth checking out!

Drugstore on Canal St

An iconic scene
That street corner on Canal is a fantastic place. Since Canal is redefining itself in this area, it has really become a great place to visit. It is almost across from the Ritz, and near the Roosevelt, so there are things to do in that area as well!

I just returned from Bangkok and must say that I COMPLETELY agree with your statement: The problem I’ve got with Bangkok is that it’s really hard to trust anyone. It constantly feels like everyone is just out to rip you off. It was a disappointment - with the exception of the Luxx Hotel staff. I've traveled quite a bit and never before had I experienced the constant shower tricks that I encountered in Bangkok. Whenever I heard "You happy, me happy" I knew someone had made an extra baht at my expense... Siem Reap, Cambodia was the perfect antidote. Be well! Varo

Green Tortoise
Heya, the Green tortoise was really cool, might have been the best hostel I stayed in the US. It's the only one that did free food 3 ties a week.

Hey Doug, I've been roughly following your travels. I know you were mostly asleep, but I hope you liked the Green Tortoise! I think I met that tour guide at 4am when I was jet lagged! Enjoy Japan, keep blogging. xx
