On this particular day, we went all around the city for the simple reason that we could. The weather was frigid, at -13 degrees with the windchill, but we didn't care. We went to lunch at a wonderful place called Moscow on the Hill. Pure Russian comfort food. And coffee. What more could you ask for on a wintry day?
We made a pit stop at a Chocolate shop, a few boutiques, and then made our way to the Como Conservatory. Stepping into a misty, 80 degree garden on a winter day is pretty amazing. And, as Josh can testify, it really fogs up the glasses for quite a while.
It was so wonderful to smell the freshness of the plants and admire their beauty. I saw a few people sitting on benches and reading, what a great way to fight the winter doldrums!
