Hot Tempers Over Cool Air
From the Moscow Times – An age-old Russian belief that air conditioning is a sure route to colds and flu has led to growing numbers of hot and grumpy expats in the summer.
Yes, it’s true. Not all homes and offices in Moscow have air conditioning. Our apartment, for example, does not have A/C. There are multiple fans and shade trees to compensate. The RGS office is air conditioned and they keep it relatively cool.
