Lara goes swimming
Lara is going to one of Reykjavík’s outdoor pools. Grandpa relaxes in the hot tub while Lara practises her swimming and has fun in the water with her friend Atli. One day, Lara will work up the courage to go down the slide, and then she’ll go faster than all the other kids and wave to Grandpa on the way down.
