  1. Dear Uncle:

    Church questions and all a good Mallu Christian boy like me can get in his sleep.

    This is, of course, the Hallgrimskirkja Church in Reykjavik. The statue is of Leif Erikson.

    Kind regards,
    Thomas Masun

    Leif Erickson. The building behind is a famous church in Reykjavik – Hallsgrimskirkja it’s called apparently.
