Winter activities: jan 2003 - feb 2003
What do people do all winter? Well, sitting around the fire, spinning and weaving and treating their wool; and of course feeling very happy, when the first snow arrives.
Waiting for winter: dec 2002 - jan 2003
We are back in India. After Thailand's sticky heat we feel so cold! Maybe three jumpers are not enough? Everybody seems to be waiting for snow.
