Favourite place to go bananas:

Freddi has Donkey Kong, and now that I’m an adult I can finally play as much as I want. Skemmtigarðurinn at Smáralind mall is also surprisingly fun.

Prikid - Lóa Hjálmtýsdóttir

Favourite place to lurk:

One of the window booths at Prikið, when no one’s there. It’s nice to sit there and spy on the people passing by. On good days I observe—on bad days I judge.

Favourite pool:

My all-time favourite pool is Laugardalslaug. It’s the best place in Reykjavík to pretend you’re hanging out in the Soviet Union. There’s also a saltwater hot tub, a dark tubular slide and 50 metre pool, which means there are fewer laps to count than in other pools.

Bands, Airwaves by Lóa Hjáltýmsdóttir

Favourite band of the moment:

Old: Prins Póló and Plúseinn forever. New: W€$€N and Milkywhale.

Favourite things to eat:

Lie: The fancy lobster at Lækjarbrekka. Truth: A tortilla roll with eggs from the supermarket and an entire bag of chocolate covered liquorice.
