    Якутск!

    Has anyone here been to Yakutsk before? I hear it is a bit of a hole but from a very unreliable source so I would be interested to hear anything at all you can tell me about it.... Is there anything there apart from permafrost and... uh...

    I haven't been there, but I have a friend who was born there. His late father was a scientist who worked in some research institute. His sister is still living there and she used to be in the Yakutsk's "Brain Ring" team. (Brain Ring is a popular in Russia intellectual game). All I can say is that there are some very educated people living and working there (although probably not as many as in Novosibirsk)... The climate is no fun for sure...

    So, if he goes to Yakutsk, he can bring back a Prime Minister as a gift for his friends? Sweet.

    Theoretically, you could pick up some diamonds, but I think basically De Beers has that market cornered, too. According to Lonely Planet, there's reindeer-led sleds, a big festival in mid-June, and ethnography/mammoth museums (mammoths are really cool -- they had one in StPb). Oh, and very few degrees and very many feet of snow...

    EDIT: Sorry, I just saw the date for the original post. Maybe someone else will dig this thread up in the future, though.
    Заранее благодарю всех за исправление ошибок в моём русском.

    I can't believe! Someone is interested in Yakutsk! I'm from Sakha Republic, not from Yakutsk, but been there a lot of times.
    My English isn't so good, зато с русским все в порядке ))
    I'll be very thankful, if you correct my mistakes.
