That winter was very cold in Russia. We met the New Year 2011 at a temperature -27°C, sometime -30°C, near the historic town of Uglich on the river of Volga where Dmitry, the 8-year-old son of the Russian tzar, Ivan the Terrible, was killed in 1591.
Winters in Russia can be very cold and incredible beautiful like a fairy tale. Nevertheless, our small German car (it name was Angelique Sain-Hevre Desiree Arno worked perfectly.
All the cats were very fluffy 🙂
There was plenty of snow, and one famous skier was able to demonstrate his skills.
Oooops… This slope was too steep for him 🙂
Then his wife…
There are not so many people on the Russian rivers in winter, therefore nobody disturbed us.
