With temperatures soaring to almost 100 degrees, my mind is on COOL things. I promise I won't spend this blog writing about the weather though, because I personally find myself bored reading blogs that are all about the weather, day after day. Instead I am thinking about fun, cool, cold things.

I left there and went home, thinking again of COOL things. Here's some COOL stuff I found:
I thought these ice cubes were a simple but amazing way to spiff up a drink
|Pi cubes. Brilliant. I want these.|
There is the Ice Hotel in Norrbotten, Sweden, the Igloo Villages of Switzerland, and the Snow Hotel of Finland, to name a few. Look those up for some fun pictures and engineering genius. In each of them, the walls, floor and furniture is made all of ice. Here is an ice bar in an ice hotel:

I am all about finding exotic and unique places to stay in while traveling. However, I don't know if I like the idea of sleeping on a slab of ice in so many layers of clothing that I couldn't move. At some of these places you check your belongings in a locker in the city, and then you are shuttled to the site of the ice hotel and given a special sleeping bag for the night.
