cold feet

Around minus 20 degrees, and this old guy is still coming out to feed the pigeons the very last of his bread crumbs. Another nice example of the generality that Russians (especially the older generation) will never throw anything away. But also a bit worrying, as I am pretty certain that he seems to be out and about in just his socks.


  1. Thoughtful of him but somewhat insane? Hope he will be ok. -6 here in the UK is cold enough...

  2. Excuse me, I found link to your blog in the Livejournal.

    No, minus twenty is not extremely cold in Moscow. That is cold but not very-very-very cold. Extremely cold is minus thirty. In Siberia minus thirty is not unusual temperature. Really cold winter temperature is minus forty there, for me it is unbelivebly cold (I am not from Siberia). But minus twenty is usual winter weather everywere in middle and north Russia. :))

  3. Moskow during winter is just amazing !
