Life in Chukotka is difficult: expensive products that deliver with a ground plane, short light day, a strong wind — ujak. For those born and raised in plentywood, such circumstances is no more than a routine.

But there are also those who prefer a comfortable life in the metropolis and the small Northern town of Russia. A native of Voronezh, who went to the North for love, and a native of Chukotka, told RIA Novosti about how wonderful and exotic life in Pevek.

Those who are here for the first time, gives lost look of despair. Where to buy five liters of water? Which hours a shop? Sell alcohol from 12:00 to 20:00? Where is the Bank? Can I withdraw money? And to put? And the most popular question: «Where can I buy a SIM card?»

A deficit of only

It’s not always possible to find fresh vegetables or fruit. Apples are on the list of socially important goods, so the state stores prices are still acceptable.

About the total migration

Migration is a myth circulated by those who fear Northern life. The zero really was a large outflow of people left the apartment, sold them for the plane ticket. But now the construction of the world’s first floating nuclear power plant has become a new stage in the life of the city. Be more jobs, so people move with their families.

In Pevek on the street or even a pregnant woman or have been with a stroller. The birth rate is increasing.

Yes, living here is difficult, but keeps the social policy of the district: good kindergartens, school, even fun, of course, not as much as I would like, but constantly appears something new.
Sofia Davydova, returned to Pevek from Moscow

I was born and grew up in Chukotka. After school went to do in Moscow for Hydrometeorology. Specifically chose a profession to go home. Mother until recently thought that the Great earth will keep me clingy paws, but homeland pulled over to her.

Plentywood is a city that is impossible to forget: its extraordinary landscape, fresh air, flora and fauna, and even good-natured people. If people come to your house to drink tea, you have no right to deny him, even if you see each other for the first time.

The harsh climate makes you a Man with a capital letter.

«Golden cucumber»

The only thing that bothers is the high price of food. From July to November in Pevek is the navigation at the seaport, and the winter food supply of the aircraft, so the cost is off the charts.

Cucumbers, for example, there are 690 rubles per kilo. We now have autumn, winter roads yet, so the store to find even potatoes and onions. But abundant fish. Many say that soon begin to glow from it, because it is rich in phosphorus.

The helicopter in the village — feast

Summer connection plentywood to remote villages is by helicopter. Once a week they deliver passengers, groceries, mail. Autumn fly even less.

The helicopter in the village is the occasion. From small to large, all go to the Playground, and it does not matter whether you meet someone or receive parcels.

Some come just to gawk. The crowd surrounded the helicopter, it is impossible to pass, and then escort him all sad eyes and begin to wait for the next flight.

Incredibly expensive Internet

Internet in Chukotka is very expensive and metered. I live in a village near plentywood — pay per thousand megabytes one thousand rubles. Therefore, the movies we download, Instagram I only watch pictures and video is very long loaded.

Polar night

When the sun comes out — for me it is a holiday and incredible happiness. In the polar day, if the weather is good, it’s worth all day. Go outside, ask how much time, asked: «Two hours.» Ask again: «Day or night?» We zastrevaet the Windows at night in order to sleep, but I can’t because the loud cry of a gull, which come here to breed. They were at this time very much.

In Moscow for 46 thousand

In September, the planes are usually Packed with miners who go to work in shifts at the mines. By the way, get in plentywood is not so easy: the city is a border area, so always need a challenge.

In the holidays I try to fly in early summer. For me at this time, wearing warm trousers, a jacket because the temperature is not higher than 10 degrees. To fly is a special adventure. Due to bad weather there are huge delays. And tickets need to be purchased for four months. The prices are certainly shocking. This year, the economy was worth almost 46 thousand rubles.

When on the mainland people find out that I Chukotka, they begin to ask: do I live in yaranga who drive on the deer, whether in yaranga Internet. It’s all stereotypes from jokes — we the ordinary people live in their apartments, go to the movies and cafes, which in several. We just have a different rhythm of life, incomprehensible to the inhabitants of large cities.
