...this is typical picture for russian winter. And the winter here's very long... ;)
Well, we call 'em "morzh" - those who'd like to swim periodically at wintertime.
U asking "why?" - well, 'cause it makes our body and spirit hard and strong. According russian traditional character, u know.
Try it at home ;)
