President Moves to Bessastaðir

President of Iceland Guðni Th. Jóhannesson and First Lady Eliza Reid just moved into Bessastaðir, the presidential residence, with their four young children. Guðni took office August 1, but the moving was delayed due to moisture damage and mould problems at the residence, which now have been fixed, RÚV reports.

Guðni posted a description of the view from Bessastaðir on his Facebook page, along with the above photo of himself riding his bike, with one child on the back of his bike and another in a bike trailer. Most likely, it shows him on his way to preschool with the youngest children.
