It’s been a while since my last post on Oymyakon, but the town is not forgotten! And just this week the Smithsonian & Amos Chapple gave us some wonderful images from Siberia.
Gas station and Christmas tree (Amos Chapple)
Cars must be run continuously when making a trip to Oymyakon (if they stop you wont get them going again because of the low temperature), and so 24/7 gas stations are essential to winter transportation. Workers on the gas stations work two weeks on and two weeks off.
Such a strange and magical world we live in …!
