I saw on the news that England is having a heat wave at the moment so I am guessing that it is much hotter than usual in Russia too. I spent some time in Thailand this year in a resort with lots of Russian tourists who were loving the hot weather. You guys were going through the gas crisis over there at the time and it was freezing cold. Talk about one extreme to another :)
As for me I like hot weather because I like to swim very much. Unfortunatly our river Kan is very cold and its stream is very strong (0,5 m/second).
