Comrade by yapi Comrade by yapi
I just came from a 5-day trip from Beijing! These vendors were selling these furry communist hats near Tiananmen Square. I know they're supposed to be Chinese, but I keep thinking of Russia!

Here in Russia, we call these hats "shapka-ushanka" or just "ushanka". In English it will be something like "ears-hat". That's because we call these "sides" as "ushi" ("ears"): when they are turned down, hat is look like "something-with-ears" - "ears-hat".

Actually, this one on the photo is chienesse and not quite russian, but it's close to. Russian "ushanka" has some differences in style and it is even more warm :) If you want, I can send to you a couple of photos of me wearing "ushanka" in the winter forest :) Sometimes I travel on walking tours in winter (alone or with "comrades" ;) ). Winter forest in night is great.
