Girl Shares Frozen Eyelash Selfie and Mosquito Selfie to Show Dramatic Temperature Changes in Russia
Even in Russia, winter doesn’t last forever.
Last January, you probably remember the viral photo of a young woman from Yakutsk, Russia, posing in the snow with frozen eyelashes.
Her name is Anastasia Gruzdeva, and she happens to live in one of the coldest places on Earth, with temperatures in the area dropping to -60 degrees Celsius (-76 degrees Fahrenheit) during the winter months.
However, in the summer, temperatures can reach up to 30 degrees Celsius (86 degrees Fahrenheit) or higher.
Gruzdeva shared how balmy the summer weather can get on her Instagram by posting a picture of herself covered in tiny mosquitoes.
The picture was made in seconds," Gruzdeva told The Siberian Times. “In fact, you do not feel them so much on your face. More sensitive are the legs, arms and back. So for a few seconds, I can endure this. Mind you, I have a sudden thought: can they bite me to death?"
The picture was taken in the village of Solnechny, which means "sunny" in Russian, according to The Siberian Times. Mosquitoes can be a real problems for locals in the village during the summer months, as Gruzdeva shows in her photo.
Her winter look is definitely a lot more mesmerizing, though probably not any more comfortable than a face full of mosquitoes.
