Yakutsk was not exactly what I had expected. I had read online that Yakutsk has about 250 000 inhabitants which in turn had given me an idea of how big it would be and how much time it would take to get around by foot. This idea was created by imagining what a Swedish city of the same size would be like. Nice try. Of course I was completely wrong.
Houses are spaced out to a much greater extent, buildings are bigger, roads are longer and straighter, there is a lot more traffic and the pedestrian streets aren't always continuous or are fighting the permafrost in their own kind of mischievous way.
It is important to keep in mind that anything you read online (as well as this text) will be framed by your previous experiences and expectations. The only way to experience what a place is like, is to go there by yourself. As much as we want to market ourselves as open minded human beings, we aren't and simply cannot be. However, the more experiences that we allow ourselves to make, the larger our own personal database of references become. Perhaps that can bring us a little bit closer to understanding the world that we live in.
Many factors came into play when I moved from one point to another. However, I had a lot of time.
At this point in time I had not yet discovered the app called 2GIS (this app saved me a great deal of trouble and also helped me with using public transportation upon my return to Yakutsk a few weeks later.) This is an app where you can find locations and opening hours of almost anything, time tables and route suggestions of public transportation and it also works as an offline GPS. Pretty handy, right?
I walked for many hours during my first three days in Yakutsk before heading further north. Now I will share, just a few more, photos from Yakutsk.

Shere khan here loves the dog park! Not sure which he loves more - free running with buds or hitting the dog park with his new two-legged friend!
That's me exploring the outdoors since 1993(I think I was 3 here 🤔) haha. Sometimes I still feel like a kid always curious and questioning everything, falling and making mistakes, sometimes getting a figurative boo boo and learning how not to fall the same way again 😂♥️😊
A lot of people think that the most valuable skill people will have in the future is programming or something technology related. In reality, the most valuable skill in the future will be creativity. Our society, partly through our educational system has shifted towards a system that foster intellectual growth and information learning, but have shied away from fostering creativity. This is bittersweet as creativity will be what will differentiate us from robots in the future and will define our ability to be successful in the workplace, amongst other benefits.
Some goals we should have for the future generations:
1)Teach creative problem solving over rote memorization.
2)Teach kids to challenge assumptions instead of accepting things “as is.”
3)Teach that mistakes are not evil, and should not be feared.
4)Drive diversity of thought over conformity.
5)Forster imagination and curiosity.

The first time I heard @jose.gonz.music
was over ten years ago when I'd immediately fallen in love with his music. Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought that I'd ever get to sit front row at one his performances. There are no words for what I experienced this evening, that was truly one of the best performances if not the best performance I've ever seen. Thank you for filling my soul with so much love and gratitude 🙏🏼 🎶

Ils aiment se faire chier les incas.
Pourquoi avoir construit la cité sur une montagne /\ ?
C'était pas pour rien !
"Et oui Jamie !"
Le Pérou a toujours connu de nombreux tremblements de terre. Les incas, à l'époque, ont bien vu que les structures verticales | | s'ecroulaient vite lors d'un tremblement, tandis que les structures en "cônes" /\ résistaient aux secousses.
La cité du Machu Picchu est pas une merveille pour rien ! C'est la cité la plus badass !
Can’t get enough of these wing photos.
Never forget about kisses before our shifts, so lucky we get to do this together 👩🏽⚕️💙👨🏼⚕️💉 #rn #loveourjobs
Opening Day at the LA County Fair the other day was amazing. The human pictured is to thank for that. We ate, explored, pet animals, appreciated art, and had a great fucking time. Then we couldn’t find the car and had miniature heart attacks (i was convinced someone stole my car). It’s crazy that this was just one of the many adventures we had this summer and it’s hard to say goodbye. School starts Monday which means I’m gonna be ripped away from my love and I’m not ready. Wish me luck. More summer adventure posts to come when i find the time to review all my pics. Also, jut look how god damn handsome he is. Unf.
