Yes the dark days before christmas. Here the tree in front of the central station (not visible here) and the metro entrance in amsterdam. As you see there is no roof above the stairs down and a lot of people have already made a slippery fall certainly with the weather conditions in winter. The commission for the design quality of the city forbid, because it was no face in front of the station, instead they put a sign what says watch out slippery ! I wonder how long this will hold. (The entrance was opened this year).
