A life of contrasts

After a comment left by Piddawinkle the other day it occured to me that recently signed up followers and those just dropping by might not realise that for the past year I have been splitting my time between the UK and Kazakhstan..........the reason being that my husband is working here in Kazakhstan and I come over to stay for several weeks at a time.......this time it's a short visit, only 6 weeks!
So as the titles says I live a life of contrasts! Emphasised more so in recent weeks when I have gone from 70 degrees in LA to -6 here in Almaty!!

Today we went for a walk in the local park.......

 where I wore these.....appropriate for the conditions I thought.......

 ...while others value fashion over warm feet and staying upright!

 A hardy local......rather her than me!

Pretty snow covered trees!

I think they must be more used to it than us to sit outside like that! Enjoy this visit and I look forward to more glimpses of a very different culture.
I was at CHA too and so I can appreciate what a temperature and culture shock you must be experiencing!

Can't believe that lady is sitting there reading in the snow, I would be numb LOL. Fabulous pictures, I did smile about the fashionable boots over comfort, remind you of anyone LOL. ENJOY the snow. Tracy x

Ooooh, lovely snow and crisp air. Much better than the damp grey stuff we get any day. :)

My brother has just been working there filming the Asian Winter Olympics. He is not in a hurry to go back-too cold.
