Winter fun in Beijing

My family and me are in Beijing at the moment to celebrate Chinese New Year. Yesterday we made a walk around Houhai where I took some typical Chinese wintertime pictures. There are not just skaters on the ice, like in Holland, but people invented all other kinds of transportation.

Several vendors where you can rent skates and other equipment

“Driving” across the lake while talking on a mobile phone

An ice bicycle

Push ice kart – similar like the ones you used to find in Holland years ago

And if you’re lazy you take can always take the goat kart!
