Cookouts aren't a thing here. But two best summer dishes are shashlik (barbeque) and okroshka (cold vegetable soup).
2) How much time have you spent outdoors this week?
Not too much, because summer went on vacation this week and we got +12C to +17C weather with rains. But on Thursday weather was nice after work, so sister and I met and walked along river for about 3 three hours walking over 10km. I'll add to it today, as I am going shopping for new sneakers and don't want to deal with buses. So I'll go on kickscooter.
3) Where do you set your thermostat?
Don't own one. But if I did, it wouldn't be set too low. It is +25C in my flat right now and that is pretty comfortable for me.
4) How did you learn to swim?
I learned to swim in salt lake as a child, where staying afloat was easy. Over time I learned to swim better, but never got actual instruction. I won't drown, but that's it.
5) How do you avoid overheating?
Dressing right, wearing a hat, always having water at hand. I also dug out old souvenir fan and now carry it with me during heat.
