How many people spent their childhood in the North! And someone was born in the Arctic Circle. An icy blizzard sang lullabies to someone and the Aurora lit up the first steps. Someone's parents worked in the North: geologists, builders, drivers, doctors, etc.
And the children grew up in the Arctic Circle, and many were even born there. They went to kindergarten and to school. Someone has been playing with dogs and reindeer since childhood. Someone has learned to ride not only on skis, but also on sleds.
In the small northern villages, the population was international. No one even thought about who his comrades were by origin and religion.
