Mondays in Iceland - #40


Reykjavík, October 11, 2015

The old harbor area in Reykjavík  has had an enormous amount of development in recent years. With its new luxury flats, dry docks and modern commercial buildings it is a mix of old, new and undeveloped real estate. It has become almost unrecognizable to me after being away for only a three years. The boat pictured above has been parked in an empty lot with severe apartments in the background overlooking it.

There are even car lots where one could pickup a used Range Rover for a cool 13.800.000 kronur:

I love pictures of old boats. 13800000 for a used Rover? No wonder so many people ride horses.

Gentrification is weird. Yes, I want to live in a nice house. But no, I don't want to stop looking at beautiful old broken crap everywhere!
