Picture of the week: Berlin Ice Swimmers

    Ice swimmers from the ‘Berliner Seehunde’ (Berlin seals) are among those taking a dip in the cold waters of Lake Oranke in the eastern Berlin district of Alt-Hohenschoenhausen. Revellers dressed in all manner of ridiculous costume including one man who wore a chicken on his head. Wasn’t that in a Spitting Image song?
