Did you know that the Jerusalem Ice Festival was actually called Ice City?
And, as in any city, residents and visitors need a place or two to dine out or get some drinks.
Therefore, Israeli artists came together to create Israel’s official ice bar!
You couldn’t really sit on the chairs and no eating or drinking was really allowed (except for visitors in the first few weeks of the exhibition), yet we were invited to sail on our imagination and indulge in fantasies of the tastiest foods and drinks we could have here.
Some camels stood right by the ice bar.
I guess that when ancient Jerusalem residents finished eating and drinking, they took their camels to see some art exhibitions.
Maybe they passed through this tunnel-slash-igloo on the way.
As mornings rose, they probably sat on their thrones and watched their pigeons eat and drink.
The ice festival was incredibly fun for me and I didn’t want to leave – even though the gate leading out was very beautiful.
Therefore, I took another look (or two) back before I finally decided it’s more important my friend doesn’t freeze than that I will be able to live in a winter wonderland for a bit longer.
Oh, but wait! I still haven’t told you about the most enchanting icy part of all: the world of icy fairy tales!
Stay tuned to next Tuesday to see wonders, colors and a whole lot of fun….
Have you ever taken camels to a museum?
