Adventure #2: The Russian Baths

Told you I was going to go somewhere warm this week! At some point in the next three days, I shall be visiting New York's famous Russian Baths, which I've heard are an adventure one MUST experience. (Don't be startled by the appearance of a nude painting when you click the link. And FYI, I will not be removing my swimsuit. Not even when I get beaten with "fragrant oak leaves." Always wanted to try that.) I probably won't be able to Tweet from the inside, but I promise I'll Tweet all the way home.

Dress warm. Yeah, the baths are warm, but getting there and back, you've got normal weather.

Here's your weather forecast for the weekend:
Saturday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 50. West wind between 9 and 13 mph.

Saturday Night: Partly cloudy, with a low around 34. Northwest wind between 8 and 10 mph.

Sunday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 46. Northwest wind between 7 and 9 mph.

Sunday Night: Mostly cloudy, with a low around 33.

You may need to keep gloves on and use a stylus to tweet.

Dear Anonymous:

Yup, she is, but I've become a bit of a weather checking nut for adventures ever since my pals and I had to climb a 5 foot fence, with our bicycles, because we'd been locked into a flooding flood control channel.
