But What About Indian Summer?!

******

In Russian, “Indian Summer” is бабье лето (babye leto), which, literally, is “grandma’s summer” (or, as we Russian-Americans would say, “baba’s summer”). It’s one of those idiomatic things in language, which you can only translate by using an equivalent idiom, NOT a literal translation.

According to Gidrometcentr Rossii (Hydrometeorological Centre of Russia), during the first week of September, central European Russia will have typical autumn weather, “Indian Summer” will come later. Sergei Yolkin gives his view of all that.
