Taking a walk on the lake in Batagai. Something funny you might see, is people walking backwards for a minute or two. This helps reduce the wind on your face. Even a very small breeze can be quite devastating at these temperatures. I started to freeze my nose several times, but always got wiser before it was too late. If you are walking in company, always check out for white areas appearing on the exposed skin of your companion: it's the beginning of a frost bite.
