Ice And Friction

Category: Kazakhstan,Personal,WeatherChrisM @ 10:36 pm

So with Autumn and then Winter fast approaching, it will soon be the time to get the old Winter boots out, dust off the fur coat (yes, I’m not huge on fur for fashion in countries where -5C is considered very chilly, but I challenge any non-vegetarian to live in temperatures down to minus 30/40C, without the use of expensive modern fabrics, and still consider fur an absolute no-no), and start swearing at the building designers who put in very pretty marble and metal tiles on some floors. Very pretty looking, but a pain in the bum (literally, sadly) when you occasionally lose the battle between grip, gravity and humiliation 🙂
