Because they did not have normal nature ice, because of the climate change the temeprature is too often above 0 Celsius, they are building an artificial ice track of 4,7 km in Biddinghuizen in the Netherlands, the 1th of the world, because a normal artificial ice-oval is 400 m. Yesterday I have seen all the machinery digging for that track that will open in december.
Can you play violin while skating?
It is quite cold, but why not. Johann Strauss wrote a skate polka. Some Dutch skaters on a discussionsite propose that André Rieu could play during the preperation of the ice some walses, because that would attack more people to iceskating competitions.
