AAH arrived home from work at around 1.15 in the morning last night and announced she was going swimming.
Yup indeed, turns out that Laugardalslaug is offering nighttime swimming all this week. In other words, they’re open 24/7. Admission costs ISK 1,000 as opposed to the regular ISK 300 or so.
This 24/7 trend has swept across Iceland in the last few months. Recently there was a report on the news that something like 50 grocery stores in the Greater Reykjavík Area [pop. 180,000 or so] were open around the clock.
Which seems totally unnecessary.
This, however, is a pretty cool idea. Although I do wonder why they’re offering it now, and not around Midsummer Night, when we have daylight 24/7.
