Life in plastic

At -20 °C each “aria di fessura” is “aria di sepoltura”, which in Italian means winds through a slit bring to the grave. Winter in Harbin often brings the temperature down to -20°C and below. Plastic foils and tape are therefore applied to doors, booths, windows, tut-tucs and wherever no slits are welcome.
