Life in the freezer- day 3

From springtime in sunny, warm Queensland Australia to autumn in Ulaanbaatar the capital of Mongolia, this is my new home for the next 7 weeks while Bob is working here. So I will be blogging about 'Life in a Freezer'. Here I am dressed to go out into -8 degrees C temperatures this morning. The under layers of wool long johns and camisole then regular jeans and denim shirt, covered by the blue down jacket, cashmere scarf and gloves, beanie pulled down over the ears and thick socks in waterproof outdoors boots- this is the casual look! My black leather handbag sits across my body making it easy to access reading glasses or sunnies when needed. It is sunny outside today with a light breeze.
This is the access road to our apartment block. The National Theatre is on the right and another building construction on the left. I need to watch carefully where I step as the ice is slippery.
The cars have packed down the snow into ice sheets.
Some footpaths are clear of snow making it easy to walk.
Life is not all bad when I can get a good cup of coffee and carrot cake in such a nice café. This one is on the ground level of the building Bob is working in. The buildings inside are super warm so the heavy outer layers come off, but go back on before I step outside again. It is a routine I shall come to know well, I think!
This is the closest I have been to a real carrot, so far!

  4. I think the worst about the cold is getting in & out of all the cold weather gear. It takes so long to put all the layers on. When you get home - it'll feel so great to run around outside in bare feet.

    1. Will love being in 1 layer of summer clothes, but will probably complain about the heat!
