______________________________

The top image is one of the rooms in an “ice hotel” in Jukkasjärvi in far northern Sweden (it’s just above the Arctic Circle). The Icehotel isn’t a goof… it’s a real hotel that one can book a room and stay the night. Obviously, it only operates from late November to early April every year, during the cold winter months. The temp is kept at -5 to -8 degrees (18 to 23 degrees Fahrenheit), and if the cold gets to you, the hotel has a shuttle to a conventional inn where the heat’s on. I might have a drink at the bar for a laugh, but trust me, let others have the “pleasure” of a night’s stay here… I’ll pass on it, if you please…
