An old post from Veritas & Venustas:
It’s cold. It’s winter. It’s minus 20 degrees, an arctic wind is blowing in from the Russian steppes, and you’re walking on the biggest street in Moscow. Above you in the swirling snow loom three towers that increase the wind chill factor to minus 50 degrees. All the vokda in Russia won’t fix this picture.
Haha Hadid? No no Nanotchka! (from the Broadway Follies of 2007)
