The coast of the Laptev Sea, surrounded by the tundra, and the small Even village Naiba. In the winter, when the temperature goes below 50 degrees Centigrade, the air of exhalation turns into glittering crystals, and one can hear the breathing break in the freezing cold. Yakuts call this “the whisper of stars”.
