284: Immersion in icy water!

Today is Sacred Epiphany here in Russia. The religious festival that commemorates the baptism of Christ. Many thousands of Russians undertake to immerse themselves completely into a hole cut through the ice. You have to see it to believe it. Respect! Here are more details about ice-swimming in various European countries - in case you would like to go for a dip!

Went for a walk in Sokolniki Park yesterday. Although it was -14 or so the sun was shining and it was a beautiful crispy day. The park was crowded with people walking, dancing, skating, sliding down snow chutes and generally enjoying themselves.
