We indulged in the delights of a banya (Russian sauna) last night. Squeaky!

The bluest of skies greeted us today so I spent the morning sorting gear for my upcoming kite -ski trip to the mountains while the team kicked back, drank tea, ate and laughed like there was no tomorrow.

After lunch the three Arctic Trucks Toyota Hiluxes collected us and we drove an hour south across the plateau to the Ice Wall. Crampons for all on the slick sun-scalloped ice. Pics tell the story.
