nice warm day

Coming out of the UTK building after paying our internet bill I saw...

a man standing and talking to his friend wearing a t-shirt, shorts, socks and his houseshoes.

This may not seem unusual to you but it has been very cold, rainy and people have already begun dressing for winter. So everyone else who was out today was wearing their winter coats, hats and boots.

It reminded me again that you can't say "all Russians do..." Even older people here are willing to be different, do what makes them comfortable and not just follow along with what everyone else around them is doing.

And guess what Tom was wearing when I returned home? Yep, t-shirt, shorts, socks and his houseshoes!!!
