February 2008 - Winter Carnival Quebec City

February 7th

  I am inside the Ice Hotel. The temperature is minus 6 degrees Celsius. It is cold and I can see my breath. I am inside a sleeping bag that is made for minus forty degree weather. The bed is made of ice - there are ice carvings on the wall - several flowers and there is a big angel/fairy carved in the wall behind us.  Ahead of us, on the wall, is a big gnome. The hotel is amazing - there is even a club with music and dancing. I have camped in the Jordan desert and now the ice hotel - two extremes to say the least. We had a great day now if I can just stay warm for the next six hours!

  Outside of the Ice Hotel - near Quebec City, Quebec.

  One of the many beautiful carvings on the Ice Hotel wall.  This was the carving in the room
  that I slept in.

  If you sleep in the Ice Hotel then this is what it will look like.  Not the most comforable
  bed in the world but a snow lovers dream!



  This is the "club" room.  Music playing, people dancing, a bar. 



  My friends David and Joey.  Trying to stay warm.



  This is the bar.  Even the glasses are made of ice.


  Ice carvings on the walls of the Ice Hotel



  That would be me!  Trying not to slide offfffff the stairs.
