Brief guide for those who are going to Chukotka

Brief guide for those who are going to Chukotka

There is no time in Chukotka. In terms of it, there is nothing to it. It is there, but it is measured here not in hours and minutes, but in days of travel, intervals between food, perfect deeds, and God knows what. The more interesting the journey, the more you want to see the sights and wild animals, the more you need the "classic mechanical time." Simple and at the same time extremely axiom difficult for a person “from the mainland”. For example, it may take more than a week to get to the district center, and it’s not known how long it takes to get to a national village from the district center. This year in Providence, I waited a plane for a week, did not wait, and left on the boat. And the plane flew to Anadyr only on the 11 day. It is impossible to fight time, you must learn to be able to wait.

Another guise of time while traveling around Chukotka is its extensibility. After two days (if you are not in the settlements) you will no longer perceive the days of the week, you simply will not need them, and after a few days you will lose your account in calendar numbers. Since Chukotka has a polar day in the summer and the surrounding space is so different from everything you lived before, your biological clock will say that you have 28, 35 or even 48 hours in a day.

The main actor in Chukotka is the weather. It is she who decides whether you will go or curse the service and idleness at the airport or hotel. Chukotka weather is very naughty girl. May vary several times a day. It is especially capricious in the eastern Chukotka (Providensky, Chukotka, Iultinsky districts) and in the former Bering district.
