Since we've had -19 degrees Celsius around here (about 2 degrees Fahrenheit) that won't let the powdery snow go away, I've seen sleds everywhere. People pull their kids around on them. But where do they sled when Leipzig is so flat? I finally saw some kids going down an artificially-built hill that supported the train tracks. It was pretty steep and I was impressed.
Anyway, everyone has sleds that look like this. It surprises me a little. Since they're all raised up like that, isn't that a little more dangerous for the kids? I guess I'm just still wary since my sledding accident on January 1st, 2009.
