This was in Leningrad, Russia. It was about 40 degrees below zero outside, just brutally brutally cold. My son was with me, he was 2 years old. I had him in a backpack which he could barely fit into because of all of the layers we put him in.
When we came to this palace, which is more of a museum now, we tried to stay inside as long as we possibly could because of the cold. If you look out the window, you can see people waling down the road. it gives me a shiver just thinking of this.
