Morozko finds her there; she is polite and kind to him, so he gives her a chest full of beautiful things and fine garments.

After a while, the family dog says that the girl is coming back, and that she is beautiful and happy.

Discovering Russia: Polar Nights & Northern Lights

I watched this documentary very nicely, is By RT Documentaries and let me tell you is very well done.

Ok someone can tell is not strictly wild but for me is an error, the northern place even if inhabited by the civilized community like Murmansk, is wild and in the documentary is explained well. The big difference from other sides of the polar circle is the population, the people here are moderns, they use the progress to create a more comfortable environment during the long polar night. yes, you can imagine for example is simple enough to switch on the artificial light and is ok but is not true.

 

Our body is not used to staying without the sun in the 24 hours period of the day, he needs the sun and all the metabolism is balanced well so you can have sweet dreams in the night time and you are very active during daylight. So when the night is 6 months long is not simple for the body and the local people explain to James who is trying on himself the problems of the Arctic Night, how to make our body accustomed to this extreme condition, so now maybe is more clear why the life even in modern and conformable condition is wild. The documentary follows showing the observation of the Aurora Borealis, this huge and spectacular effect witch mother nature gives us. The Aurora Borealis effect is caused by the elementary particles collision, generally neutrons and atoms, when the atoms are hit they release energy in the shape of light, generally green and sometimes red.  The documentary ending showing the joy and the parties by the local people at the first sunrise of the year, it demonstrates how much is waited and important the sun.
