Winter Walks

I had always wondered how these Russian super moms here managed to warmly walk their children for hours at a time in below freezing temperatures.  Could it be some secret slow release foot warmer contained in the high heel?  No.  Now I know:  the awesome power of the stroller muff.  I thought about asking a mom passing by if I could just warm my hands in her muff for a few minutes.  Then I realized I didn't know the word for "muff" in Russian and figured the possible consequences of asking in my own words could severely limit my trips to the park in the future.  I guess it's off to Ashan to pick up a stroller muff...
