having wet feet was worth it

We missed the winter in Plovdiv until recently. Last weekend I spent with friends in Belgrade and although I initially imagined it would be a very urban trip, we had another idea when we were in the city and saw the amount of snow they had.

We spent a few hours out in the snow sliding. I really enjoyed it. I believe it was fun for many other people also. It was quite difficult to slide down the slope and not hit anybody. More funny pictures here.

These days the snow reached also Plovdiv. Up to now (say the last few years) I only found pleasure in walking the dog in the snow and could not think of any other reasons why I should spend time outside in the cold.
This weekend however I was more than happy to take part in a real snow fight and making of a snowman. It was great to be a kid again!
