Frozen canals means it's ice skating time
When I was in Amsterdam in 1997, it was so cold the canals had frozen. When I moved here in June I told my colleagues how much I was dreading the winter. They told me not to worry because winters were much milder these days.,
Guess who was lucky enough to be here the first time in 12 years that the canals had frozen? Ugh. Just my luck. Still, it was cool to see the skaters on the canals.
