A few miles outside Reykjavik, out in the middle of a huge field of black lava, sits one of Iceland’s most famous tourist attractions — the Blue Lagoon.
As its name indicates, the Blue Lagoon is filled with aqua blue water. And tourists. Many, many tourists. All of them dipping their hands into tubs of sulfurous slime and rubbing it all over their faces as they relax in the steaming, geothermal-heated water.
I selected this photo over one I took at a slightly different angle just a few seconds earlier. That photo included two people making out in the background. The water isn’t the only thing that’s hot at the Blue Lagoon.
