ice skating and old friends

Can't remember if I got to go ice skating last winter, but made up for the last couple years today.
Met up with my wonderful and funny friend Richard, who is one of the chiefs behind the Vienna Ice Dream in front of the city hall. We were joined by Margit and Mike, and caught up on what's been happening over the last couple years. 
After hours at Cafe Einstein, Margit and I braved the cold and put on our skates. Don't know how we did it, but for the next 2.5 hours we skated across the ice. Forget boring square or oval ice rinks, they have fun little ice allies around the park. Miracles of miracles, during all this time neither of us fell down once. Very impressed and a little proud I have to say. The most beautiful thing has to be the backdrop of city hall and Burgtheater, an atmosphere you can't get anywhere else in the world. Stunning!
Have a look:
Thanks for the tickets Richard, Margit thanks for coming out to play. Loved it and would do it again in a heartbeat!
