Winter has arrived - my mind is elsewhere...
I'm a proud Canadian, but I've managed to live winters out at various times in my life in:
- Khartoum, Sudan
- France (well, the food was good)
- Australia (part of a winter)
Maybe I could learn to live with the snakes....
Don't dance images of tropical sceneries in-front of my eyes at this time of year. You bad!
Ian - droll... and true.
Hmmmm, snakes or snow? Madcap - I'll take the snakes.
Apologies Zee, I'll post some lovely snow pics soon I bet.
Xanjukta - I forgot to mention that I spent a winter in India too! It was near Hardwhar in the north and was damn cold at night, but it was lovely in the daytime - love to visit again.
When are you coming to Russia...to spend a winter here would be an experience for you too?
Also, after I had lived in Saudi Arabia for a few years and returned to Ottawa, holy cow. My blood had 'thinned' and I just couldn't adjust to the cold anymore. I think -5 is about right, but anywhere below that is inhumane!!
Beautiful pictures by the way. I have been to Manzanilla, but it has been many, many years.
Ingrid, I go to Ottawa often. Coldest national capital in the world after Ulan Bator.
Karena - I love your plans for your 50th. Tellyou friends to lighten up and come with you.
For my 50th, I did a mundane, but slightly wild act - got a tattoo. You can find it on my blog very close to these words.
