Day 12: International Women's Day

Monday was International Women's Day, originally started as a socialist celebration, the day is quite popular in (post-)Communist countries, and is actually a public holiday here. We only discovered this in passing conversation over the weekend.

We also had no real plans for Monday, since it's our non-teaching day anyway. We slept in a little later, started a jigsaw puzzle, ate some noodles. In the afternoon we decided to work on some video footage for a dvd presentation we're hoping to put together. This involved some scripting and so forth.

Unfortunately, batteries do not like the cold. So once we'd charged up our video camera's batteries, and headed outside, we filmed for about 15 minutes before they decided they were done. We were getting cold too! We did get a little bit of footage of a car doing tricks on the ice/soccer field behind our apartment block.

There's not a lot to say when one has spent almost all day inside!

Tomorrow, back to teaching.
