"Penguins and polar bears hibernate."
"No, they don't . They love cold."
"Yes, they do. They hibernate in summer!"
"Yes, they don't like the heat."
"Can we go to the seaside?"
"We have to take a plane."
"Because there's no seaside in New Mexico."
Do our nonni live near the seaside?"
"Well, they are closer to the mountains, don't you remember? They are close to the A..."
"To the Artic?"
"Mamma, did you know that many, many years ago, like when you were little, there was GRASS at the South Pole?"
(btw, my parents live near the Alps, not the North Pole)
