Unexpectedly, my colleagues realised I had utterly disappeared. I had wandered off and fallen in a gap, which was lined up within the thick snow! I had no concept this might occur.’ Fortunately, no one was damage and the story is recounted fondly and lightheartedly, nevertheless it comes to indicate, Kogan explains, simply how inexperienced they have been with the local weather and its circumstances.
