    Got these from a friend,.. this is apparently taken in Harbin, China,... in the northeastern part of that country. This "city" is built & carved entirely out of huge blocks of ice,.. with multi-colored lights buried within,... some structures are more than 100 ft high!

    This replica of the "Great Wall" also serves as one of the longest ice slides in the world,... they don't let you go down it with certain types of clothing,... 'cause you're gonna die at the end,.. :dizzy:

    Almost all these structures are built from only ice blocks,.. no other internal supports,...
