Will You Want Ice With That!

Hey,

.

Now, as you  know, I am not usually very complimentary about China, but today it makes a nice change to write about something pleasant.

Pretty things are happening again in Northern China, on the edge of Beijing.

.

It is the end of the traditional Lunar Festival and it is being celebrated by the creation of something wonderful.

.

The Yangquing Ice festival is attracting many thrilled visitors who are awed by a cityscape of ice, which is filled with glowing coloured lights contained inside the ice, and which also reflects the twinkling lights hung above the scene.

.

Enthusiastic visitors can walk around, on, and through the display by using the ice tunnels cut through the glowing ‘buildings’.

.

.

There are apparently fireworks too, cleverly created by casting molten iron against the frozen ice walls.

.

.

Beijing Annual Ice Festival.

.

The Ice Festival will magnificently usher in The Year Of the Dragon.

.

Now that is something worth seeing.

Have a shiny one yourself!

J.
