In Novosibirsk the temperature has been around -38 C lately. Anna and Nina visited Gerda and Kai on the 17th of January but for the time being it’s too cold for a zoo visit. Well, I can understand that!!

Kai seems to be wondering where the visitors are.

Hey, this is the perfect polar bear weather!

OK, I understand you would be freezing because you haven’t got a thick fur like Gerda and I have.

I’m waiting for you and you’re very welcome when it gets a bit warmer – let’s say around only – 30! Hahaa, just kidding!! 🙂

We don’t know yet where our son Rostik will be heading but we’ll let you know as soon as there is some information.

  1. Dear Anna, Nina & Mervi

    The deepest temperature I remember,
    was -20°C, but that was in the 70ties.
    I can´t imagine -38°C, that would be
    much too cold for us in the West. 😉
    Thank you for the nice pictures
    of Kai and the videos. 🙂 I am
    curious, where Rostik is now?
    I´ll watch the videos in the
    evening, when there is
    more time. Thank you!

    Greetings
    Chris 🙂

  2. Dear Mervi, Anna and Nina!
    Thank you for the winter pictures and videos of Gerda and Kai. They enjoy the snow. It is surely not as pleasant for you to walk through the zoo. You have the cold winter.
    Hugs
    Ludmila

  3. Dear Mervi, Anna and Nina
    What gorgeous pictures and video of Kai and Gerda.
    They have such beautiful thick fur. They are also really
    interested to see who is coming to visit them in such cold weather.
    I hope Rostik will go somewhere nice, perhaps even Doncaster

  4. Dear Mervi, Nina and Anna!
    Thank you for giving us an update on Gerda and Kai.
    It´s obvious the bears enjoy winter, frost and snow to the fullest.
    I loved especially the second video and grant them every snowflake!

    Dear Nina and Anna!
    My great respect that you visited the bears although you must have been chilled to the bone. That´s love!

    Hugs

  5. Liebe Mervi,

    Kai und Gerda gehören zurzeit wahrscheinlich zu den wenigen Eisbären, die sich Schnee freuen dürfen. Und das sie das genießen, sieht man bestens in den beiden Videos.
    Aber auch die Bilder sind klasse.

    Das sieht putzig aus, wie Kai im Schnee sitzt und Ausschau hält.

    Danke fürs Zeigen.

    Liebe Grüße
    Monika

  6. Dear Anna and Nina and Dear Mervi,
    -38°C: I just do not want to know how cold that is but I think that even my kersenpittenkussentje will no longer be sufficient to keep my feet warm during the night.
    Ladies, I admire your courage to visit your polar bears in such temperatures and it goes without saying that they will have appreciated your presence. Gerda seems to be very skillful. Maybe she is preparing her exams for engineer. And Kai, ah well, he is really a man: playful and charming and training for “Carpe Diem”.

  7. Thank you very much dear Mervi, Anna and Nina.
    Best wishes to Gerda and Kai.

  8. OMG 38° Celsius – Schlotter!

    Das sind wirklich nett anzusehende Bären. Und speziell in dem zweiten Video sieht das alles so gemütlich aus, dass man sich eher vorstellen könnte, dass es da unten ‘warm’ ist im abgelassenen Wassergraben mit dickem Schneebett. Dieser Bäre bewegt sich mit soviel Gemütlichkeit und sichtbarem Wohlbefinden!

    Ich mag auch die russischen Stimmen im Hintergrund! 🙂

    Vielen Dank, liebe ANNA und liebe MERVI fürs Einstellen dieses bebilderten Berichts.

    Hoffen wir, dass auch ROSTIK bald (wieder?) glücklich in einem neuen EIGENEN REICH sein wird!

  9. Oh sorry, I didn’t notic that a thrd person was involved in the contribution:

    Of course, I would also say THANK YOU! to NINA for the great videos !

  10. To PATRICIA ROBERTS!

    I am so happy that I met again a ‘kersenpittenkussentje’ since so looooong! 🙂

  11. Ihr Lieben, wäre ich ein Eisbär würde mir dieses Wetter bestimmt auch so viel Freude machen. So bin ich aber froh, die wunderschönen Bilder gemütlich zuhause anschauen zu können.

    Danke fürs Zeigen!

    Liebe Grüße, Erika

  12. Dear Mervi, Anna and Nina!

    Hugs Inge

  13. Liebe Mervi, Anna und Nina,
    wie herrlich so viel Schnee und auf den Videos ist das noch besser zu sehen.
    Ein prachtvoller Eisbär ist Kai und Gerda ist eine ganz Süsse.
    Danke Euch für diese schöne Gemeinschaftsproduktion.
    Liebe Grüße Moni K
