Mowing the ice?
Picturit: Yes he was, there was some 'bumps and irregularities' and often people hold on to the boarding to 'skate'. It is quite impossible to skate the 'Himalayas' when you are not sure about your skills on ice-skates. So yes this man kept the ice smooth even in the small corners smile.
Astrid.
There are those cool letters again...
Picturit: Indeed and almost gone, I was just in time to capture them wink

Très drôle l'endroit où tu as mis ta signature.
Picturit: Thank you kindly, Martine.
Astrid.
It does look like good fun! I'm pleased he's polishing your signature!
Picturit: The people on the ice had great fun. And of course many tourist come here too.
Astrid.
He seems to be trying to erase your name, Astrid...
Picturit: I am afraid he got stuck on my name wink
Astrid

Picturit: Thank you, Ayush. The moment I saw this man, I knew where my name would be smile

Great video, Astrid - I think I would be one of the ones going round with a chair!
Picturit: There were enough chairs to skate 'behind'... the way to have fun and be comfortable.

He is mowing the ice because it has grown long..
Picturit: I told Frank: There were some 'bumps and irregularities' and often people hold on to the boarding to 'skate'. It is quite impossible to skate the 'Himalayas' when you are not sure about your skills on ice-skates. So yes this man kept the ice smooth even in the small corners.
That was such a fun spot that day in Amsterdam! I think this may be my favorite ever of all your signatures!!!
Picturit: Thank you kindly, Ginnie. You are my biggest fan when it comes to my signature. I have to say this is indeed one of the most 'challenging' I have done smile

Oh, I see there is een ijsbaan -and was you scating, too? I once saw the people scating on the grachten met musik in A'dam.
Picturit: Each year they have a skating rink here, in summer there is a big pond and you can sail small sailing-boats. This is artificial ice though, it was too warm for the canals to freeze over.
Astrid.
These portable ice rinks are becoming very popular
Picturit: They are, in summer this is a big pond and you can sail a small sailing-boat in it...

He's focused on his job and is not distracted by the antics of the people beyond the rink. He's probably wondering who "Astrid" is?
Picturit: I think Astrid is his worse nightmare HA... just kidding. He is smoothing the ice, so you can hang on to the boarding and still try to skate...
Astrid.
Did you finally get skating?
Picturit: No we did not have the time and I never skated on figure/hockey skates. I am more used to the long blades and no this is not my kind o skating, I want to go the long stretches in the polder, on the frozen canals...

To mow the snow.
Picturit: Indeed so... he is practicing for that summer job....
The man smooths the ice so that you can hang on to the boarding and still an able to skate.
Astrid.
I must get my garden done when it next snows Astrid.
Picturit: And after that, get out the skates and make some pirouettes... grin...
Astrid.
We have outdoor skating rinks in cities over here during the winter, mainly around Christmas.
Picturit: I think this one will last a few months, many tourists make it worth the time being here.
Astrid.
I hate to think what that would do to my old ankles!
Picturit: There is also a place where you can sit down and have a nice drink and enjoy... let them do the skating smile

It looks like everyone is having a lot of fun smile
Picturit: They had, skating is something a lot of people enjoy. Or enjoy watching.
Astrid.
