Hello! My name is Natasha. I am from Yakutia, the republic in Russia, where the Pole of Cold is situated. My husband, our three chidren and me live in a big wooden house not far from the center of our city. And we are open to the people all over the world. Being Sakha by nationality, we can offer our guests different dishes of national cuisine, some of which are very exotic :) Our city is not very big but we have some interesting places to visit :) Welcome to Yakutia.
Help in the house
In exchange I can teach to cook Sakha and Russian national dishes, be a quide in our city, tell interesting facts about Yakutia. Travellers can visit such interesing places as the Institute of Permafrost, the ethno touristic complex Usadba Atlasovykh, the Ice Town (in spring), celebrate national holiday Ysyakh (Yakut New Year) in summer, get new knowledge about the life in the North, taste national dishes. I can arrange meetings with the students of the North-Eastern Federal University or other people according to the interests of the guest.
I would be glad to host guests who can help me with the house work, cook and teach me to cook their national dishes and practice English with my 10-year-old daughter. In exchange I can teach to cook Sakha and Russian national dishes, be a quide in our city, tell interesting facts about Yakutia.
