this weekend marked the coldest consecutive days of the winter to date: current temperature, -19C/-29C with windchill (trust me, it feels more like the latter). despite this, a surprising amount of time was spent walking around outside, which isn’t actually too bad if you’re wearing crazy amounts of layers, like i was. the only downside to not yet owning a balaclava is that within five minutes i lost the ability to move any part of my face. the first few pictures are from a birthday dinner friday night; the guest of honour treated us to a traditional iranian dinner, whose spiced lentils i still can’t get off my tastebuds. so delicious. the second set of pictures are from a hike up mont royal today, this being the “mountain” behind mcgill, which people ski and snow tube on in the colder seasons.
