I may have got that wrong -- Berlin's cold snap was in January 2006, when I escaped it by being in Osaka with Hisae.

Ah yes, here I am in January 2006 asking Why are Japanese houses so cold? I'm glad not to be in Berlin, but no matter how cold it gets in Berlin I'm never as cold as I am in Japan, because they don't heat their houses properly in Japan.

That sounds about right, I suppose Berlin's cold snap was also Gdansk's. I was visiting Gdansk from Wroclaw and it's the only time I've ever seen frozen sea.

New Zealand is the same. The coldest it has been in Auckland in my living memory was 6 degrees during the day and 0 overnight, but even at around 12 it feels freezing because there is insufficient heating and insulation. Don't even get me started on the soundproofing consequences of this.

I suspect the colonisers assumed the climate would be tropical...
