|New people have to get acquinted with working in an area where polar bears can roam. So I suggested a walk for Yuta and Mari to a safe open area south of town. To practice all safety precautions. On this first trip outside the village, they stumbled upon a polar bear. From a safe distance, but quite some experience if you have just arrived. In two days, Mari has seen minky whales, an arctic fox and a polar bear.|
