This is getting ridiculous. I’ve seen the year’s first snow all over Central Asia (in Bishkek, Chong Kemin and Samarkand) but have always said that snow in London is rare. It still is compared to most places in the CIS, but on my first day in Central London for a few months after a tea afternoon with an ex-colleague and her enchanting 18-month son, it started snowing and I was treated to the rare sight of London and Tower Bridge in the snow. And I think I might even see snow in Colombia, and yes, the meteorological variety: a friend has suggested a trip to the Sierra Nevada, i.e. the Snowy Mountains.
