Made it to the market and back today without falling on my keester. I feel like I’m in a new place entirely–a bit out of my element, to be sure. BUT … it’s wonderful – exhilerating – a true adventure.
I’ve arrived to witness a rare event here in Samara – the frost clinging to the birch tree limbs. So in honor of the occasion – here are a few shots of what I saw today, just outside the building where I’m staying. Hope you enjoy!
Yea and double Yea! I love the winter wonderland you are surrounded with. I grew up with that stuff! It is so beautiful. And it seems to freshen the air. Not too shabby of a welcome! Hugs to you and your dear sisters in Christ! I hope you can move around…being so bundled up! LOL
LOL Pati! I could barely move. All functions take twice as long. Now see why people have those mittens where the finger part folds back. But you’re right, the air is SO fresh (unlike in the summer) and crisp. Will be using my special socks tonight as I travel to a friend’s place to spend New Year’s Eve. Thanks for the encouragement. 🙂
My goodness! Not another soul in site!! “Only the crazy tourist go outside”,they said from their windows! LOL (little do they know you are almost one of them!) :0) Enjoy!! Throw a snowball at Tanya for me!! :0)
Well, there were a few people – I just tried to keep them out of the pictures. The grocery store was really crowded with folks preparing for New Year’s meals. It’s also possible many were sill at work. The roads are really congested–lots of traffic jams and backed up transport. Should be real interesting getting into the downtown tomorrow…
