Ice Sculpture

It's Frosty the Snowman!  Just after I took this photo, the artist brought out a blow torch to "polish" his masterpiece.  I'm not sure how, but after a good torching, the ice sculpture shines crystal clear!

Last night I attended Birmingham, Michigan's first annual outdoor "German Winter Holiday Markt."  There was a chorus singing Christmas carols, vendors selling German (and handmade) wares and actual roasted chestnuts for sale. 

I planned on having a mug of Gluhwein (hot mulled wine) to warm me up, but the line for food was a bit too long.

I was drawn to this event because I took German language classes in high school (and have been to Germany a few times).  It was fun to hear German being spoken and I could pretend I was back in Munich for a moment.  Guten Nacht!
