The Christmas When Santa Tried To Ski

One Christmas, Santa’s sleigh was broke down again.

He had no means of transport – boy, it was a pain !

He climbed half way up a hill … he got a great view, but also caught a chill !

As he sneezed, some of the snow shook – before he knew it, off he took !

Some of the branches were unstuck … he started to slide and landed in the brook !

Luckily, the logs on the route, were great skis to put on his foot, instead of his boots.

That Christmas went faster than ever – especially since he spent most of his time in bed with fever !

If the hill climbed by Santa was 5 km high, travelling at a speed of 0.5 km / 5 minutes, how long did it take to reach the bottom of the hill ?
