We were invited to go ice skating at a nearby indoor rink.
It was our first experience with skating in a city that is currently battling 32-degree-C weather... and it was FUN!
The first thing we did after opening presents was rent ice skates -- their only option for rentals was figure skates, though we did see a young boy on hockey skates (probably his own, gauging by how well he flitted across the ice). Then it was on to the "rink", a small, pock-marked surface of artificial ice, which was periodically cleared by a fellow with a little scoop. (No zamboni here!)
The music was fun and not too loud, and there were disco lights to skate to -- the boys actually really liked it: "It's good, 'cause it's not too crowded, Mom!", not to mention that basically everyone there was as lousy at skating as they were, tee hee!
