Is this China's coolest town? Winter festival creates city made entirely from snow and ice
The town of Harbin in northeast China has created an entire city carved out of ice and snow. The 28th Harbin International Ice and Snow Festival, which opens on January 5, features work by some of the best ice sculptors and attracts thousands of visitors from around the world. The town, located near the border with Russia, experiences dry but freezing winters and has an abundance of ice on tap from the nearby Songhau River.
witches from russia are born with winter in their fingertips, and frost in their breath. everybody knows not to mess with a russian witch, they’ll speak your name and you’ll perish in snow and ice. though cold, do not take a russian witch to be frozen - their true warmth is within.
