Tuesday, January 31, 2006The Frozen World
This weekend all the lakes surrounding Berlin were frozen over. My language tandem partner took me out to Müggelsee, to the East of Berlin, on Saturday morning. The sunlight was so bright and hazy that the lake seemed to go on forever. The ice was about 40 thick, but you could hear it shifting the whole time. The next day I went back with more friends and found the police warning people not to tred on the ice as it was a "lebensgefahr". We tredded on it regardless and didn't drown. Sadly, the moment has gone and the temperatures are slowly climbing above freezing.
