I Found a Way Around the Mud

The trick is this: Freeze it.

We finally had our first, what I would consider, cold day here in Lənkəran.  I woke up yesterday morning to find frost on the ground, and my bedroom was especially cold.  Even though I’ve double-layered plastic over the windows, it still gets a bit drafty.  Lighting the stove in my room for two hours before I go to bed doesn’t quite do it.  It’s okay until you turn it off; that cold just zips in and the heat gets shooed out of the room.

Walking to work on these mornings is enjoyable, though.  I love a good, bundled walk in a frozen morning, when it’s cold enough to tickle the tip of your nose.  The extra bonus is that I didn’t have to navigate the mud pits from my home to the city.  In fact, I could just glide right over the top of them, as they were frozen and could do nothing to my shoes.  It feels like winter is finally here!
