ice rink mex cityThe Mexico City government has gotten into the Christmas spirit this year by installing a gigantic ice skating rink in downtown Mexico City.

They have invested lots of money in the rink, causing quite a controversy, but providing citizens with a fun activity. As you can see by the picture, the rink can accommodate a lot of people. I read somewhere that there are 1600 pairs of skates available for use at the rink.

I can’t wait to see this in person. It’s a great idea, in my opinion. We’ll probably go on a weekday when there’s less of a chance of there being a big crowd.
