Polar Bear Club?

Today was the first time I went swimming on New Year's Day. I'd seen photos every January 1st of the Polar Bear Club diving into icy waters, but it never really appealed to me.

It's a lot easier in the Southern hemisphere. It was so hot today that the brown water of Río de la Plata was very attractive. Pocitos beach was active all day, starting before sunrise. The all-night partiers greeted the dawn with firecrackers. By mid-morning the beach was full of sunbathers and swimmers.
