Canal Skating

We haven't seen anyone ice skating on frozen lakes or canals since we have been in the Netherlands, but apparently it is traditional in years that are cold enough. Friday we met with several of Roxi's new colleagues and were told by one that this was the first winter in twelve years that the Dutch canals have frozen and people took to their skates. It must have been a sight to see if the picture that accompanies this story is any indication. Perhaps we'll have the opportunity to give it a try in the coming weeks.
