The diet of these people are mostly red meat, several types of fishes, liver of horses etc. crop cultivation cannot happen due to the extreme weather conditions.

A photojournalist who travelled from New York to Oymyakon said that he was wrecked just by walking around for a couple of hours. He had been surviving on reindeer soup. He also remarked that he was surprised to see people living their routine in this weather and a market that he had been to was happening even when the temperature was a negative 54, where his hands froze to terrible pain while capturing an image of the market.

There was also a picture of a ballerina who posed in the cold, nevertheless, the picture was as breathtaking as the weather conditions.

This explains better why people say “ somethings are enjoyable only in measurable amounts” cause extremes are difficult to handle and live by. But in some places, winter is quite an enjoyable season where many activities can be done. Check out these amazing things to add to your bucket list when you go to Canada for winter.
