Beijingers in Xicheng District awoke this morning to a surprise ice festival a la Harbin (OK, slight embellishment) after a water pipe burst overnight and showered the frigid neighborhood.
Far from being miffed by the infrastructure fail, however, local residents looked delighted to play in the unexpected Winter Wonderland.
It's little wonder the spraying water froze so quickly, however. As the faces of these pedestrians in Yantai, Shandong brilliantly illustrate, it's cold today.
