Travelling Without Moving

Category: Kazakhstan,Videos,WeatherChrisM @ 2:21 pm

A friend of Ben’s uploaded this video to YouTube a couple of days ago. The slippiness could well be down to the fact that a day or so before, the weather actually got very mild, with temperatures above 0C. Some rain fell, which then sat on the road/pavements and re-froze, when Kazakh winter temperatures returned, along with a very biting wind. I’m not sure whether some of the people were “playing” in the wind, or whether they were all trying to cross from top right to bottom left of the screen, but you can see just how difficult moving around the city can be on harsh weather days.
