Chill a bit

If you ever go to Chamonix in France with your kids you can take them on a magical ride on a mountain railway up to see a glacier that you can walk through.

when I say magical what I mean is you have to shell out about €70 for them to moan on about ‘when will we get there’ and you to mutter things like ‘you ungrateful little shits’ under your breath.

What you are not prepared for is the rate at which the glacier is melting.

This is the view from the glacier.

The cable car platform was installed in about 1990 I think. The tiny little ants in the picture are people (and not ants – otherwise we’d really be in the shit).

Put on a jumper and turn down the heat!
