A walk around Talvatis

Funny things happen when you go on a walk at -24 °C (-11 °F). At first your nose starts tickling because the hair inside freezes, then you get tiny ice clumps on your eyelashes and eyebrows. Hair that’s sticking out of your beanie freezes as well. You could probably break yourself a new haircut (hairbreak?).

That’s what I learned when I took a walk around Talvatis, a lake in Jokkmokk. I also learned that even though sunrise is at 10 and sunset at 1, it’s not as dark as one would think. (Okay, it’s probably worse on cloudy days …) It’s like dawn and dusk merging into another for hours and the light is incredible.
