village

almost all the houses are made  of wood each resident burns   more than 60 cubic meters on average every winter   for the house to keep warm and to protect  the house from the freezing air they make   sure to fill every gap with oakum or snow but  still the cold finds a way to come through wild yogurt and horses are also neighbors  in this icy land they have thick skin and   heavy hair coat and are able to effectively  forage in the snow for vegetation to eat   the
