No Hot Water Every Year is Normal…

Is This a Pidgeon hole...

I read several articles today from other blogs and websites. They were complaining about the lack of hot water in the cities every year in Russia due to cleaning the systems out…

It then dawned on me that we were almost done with our turn at no hot water…

It also dawned on me that I never cared this year. I have been taking cold showers and washing dishes in water that you heat in a pot. I never even blinked an eye at doing this. Then I realized that I have almost totally adapted…

I hear and talk to newbies to Moscow and they are mortified the first time they see the famous squat toilets at the rail station. They literally scream when they lose hot water in the summer for a week to two weeks. They gasp when they are told to filter all drinking water. They wanna go home when they find that ice cubes are part of another world they left behind…

Many newbies never make it and I have never understood why. Life is very good here but it is different and that makes it even better than good…

So I smiled today at the realization that I have become a Muscovite sorta-be!

I even think the pigeons are wonderful now…
