Along For the Ride

Despite temperatures reaching 6 degrees Celsius (44 Fahrenheit) today in Munich, locals dismissed warnings by the Red Cross and local authorities to stay off the ponds. This photo here shows a father and his daughter enjoying the remaining ice at the Lake House in the English Garden. It was so strange to see hundreds of people playing and skating on the ice, when a third of the lake had clearly thawed and had no ice at all. Temperatures are expected to sit around 2 degrees for the next few days, so we’ll see whether the ice ponds are here to stay or not.
