Stranded in the snow

... before being hustled by the guide into our shoes again and outside so that we could line up, remove our hats, hide our umbrellas behind ourselves and then crouch down with bowed heads and hands together as in prayer so that we could be blessed by the priest on his way past. The blessing consisted of being struck on the head by one of the beads he was carrying. We left the main hall and clambered through the snow, which was up to mid calf level in the gardens to see some minor ...
