Forget that famous but dinky little skating rink in New York's Rockefeller Center. And forget the warm climate in Mexico City. A giant outdoor skating rink opened this month in Mexico's capital. And it accommodates an average of 1,000 skaters per hour.
The city found a way to keep the ice frozen, but after that, people are on their own. Thousands of spectators in the grandstands watch the novice skaters fall.
