After a few hours at the snow festival, we returned to the hotel to warm up and eat. In the evening, we went back out to see the ice festival. Jim took most of the pictures because I was too cold to take my hands out of my gloves. These buildings and bridges and slides are all made with ice bricks that are made from water from the river in Harbin.

It was a very quick trip, but honestly I could not have gone outside another day. I'm a big baby. It was something that we'll never forget and I think I can say with confidence that it was really a once in a lifetime experience.
