Guess what’s almost over?!

Распутица!

How to understand распутица?

The word can be broken down to рас (undo) + путь (road) + ица (makes the word a noun)…

…or skip all that and just watch this.

 

What do you think of this time of year? Are you up for an adventure or would you prefer to fly? ; )

 

PS: Here’s a Russian city-by-city list of when you’re not allowed to drive heavy trucks due to распутица 2017.

PPS: That hot mess of a muddy road? This picture was taken out the window of my Siberian dorm in 2006. Simply crossing the street during that season was an epic journey…
