Swimming in natural waters
Paul swims in natural waters. But not only when the weather is nice and the water warm.
It is now December 2020 and the water temperature has dropped to about 7 degrees Celsius. But Paul still dives into the water.
I accompanied him on a slate gray thursday morning. He explains what swimming means to him and why he chooses to sometimes start his day like this.
