Win­ter won­der­lands around the world

China Daily (Canada) - - HOLIDAY -

The cold, bit­ter wind and a drop in tem­per­a­ture do not pre­vent peo­ple from hav­ing fun in a world of ice and snow. Peo­ple from China’s North­east jump in front of a rooster-shaped snow sculp­ture. A run­ner in Rus­sia has his face cov­ered with frost. A man swims in the freez­ing wa­ter of the Foun­tain of War­saw in front of the Eif­fel Tower in Paris. The frozen fairy foun­tain in Italy touches every­one’s heart. Or, for those of us at home and on a bud­get, you can sim­ply dress up your dog and go for a walk.
