Haerbin Ice & Snow Festival
|Haerbin Ice & Snow Festival--yes, that's a projection screen on the front!|
"And now a word from our sponsors!"
|Of course there was a pagoda!|
|The photo has the white blur from my exhaled breath!|
Some of the buildings had slides that you could go down. It was pretty much fun.
|Kirk had to do his slide on his feet, like skiing!|
|I kept it safe and slid on my bum--no sled or saucer, just my 4 layers of pants!|
They also had some sculptures made from snow instead of ice.
|Of course there's a Buddha--this is China!|
|I found Nemo!|
|And "Ice Age"--is that a pun?|
We spent the whole time walking through and around all the creations, each one more amazing than the last. But our favorite sight was when we saw the big, orange, full moon rising up over the Muslim Mosque. Can you see it?
|The moon is between the steeples here--the other dots are snowflakes!|
|Straight above my head and the mosque moon--cool, huh?|
