Wow <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />- look at her photos and read the story The lady lives in very northern Russi in the Komi "province". Type "Inta, Russia" into Google Earth to go there. Its pretty flat and COVERED with small round lakes which indicates very old lava flow like the Canadian Shield.

They drive a "tank" <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif" alt="" />and raise reindeer and wear reindeer boots.
