It was 9 °C and fresh breeze 9 m/s. Brrr, just spending a few minutes in this wind can make you cold into your bones, and the potential for catching a cold or a flue is huge- unless you carry proper clothing.
I had put on two coat layers; one long thin down jacket underneath a trench coat. There was a hood on my down jacket, which I was hugely grateful for and that I pulled up to protect my head and ears.
I was able to fully enjoy and appreciate the 25 minutes walk through one of the most beautiful capitals in the world, and I was not at all bothered by the cold wind.
As I looked around me, lots of people hurried to get to their various destinations seemingly freezing. I was curious as to whether they had chosen their clothes that morning out of wisdom or vain, and curious to how many would catch a cold due to not wearing proper attire for the weather?
At the onset of a cold, follow the recipe above! It has prevented my family members, including myself as well as numerous other people from catching a cold or a flue.
