HERE MUCH MORE PHOTO'S, 63OF HOARFROST AND SKATING
Most skating ovals in the world are 400 meter or shorter, but since 2 weeks we have in Holland a skating oval of 5000 meter, 5 KM!!!, because we miss strong winters the last years, because of climat changes. It is called FLEVONICE
. FLEVO IN ICE (English internet influence). Flevoland is a part of the Netherlands below sea level and they pump the water over a dike.
Here some picture of this artificial-ice oval of 5km in FLEVONICE
and my body-protection, because you can fall hard on the ice and skates are sharp as knives and I also want to play violin without injuries:
A lot of bodyprotectors for head, shoulders(from ice-hockey), elbows, knee's, hips and underback (black rubber piece in my black dress),cut-proof socks and underleg-protectors against other skates hitting my legs.
The result of all the protection
The track photografhed from a plane.
