... and the way of life in these villages was coming to an end after hundreds of years which was a real shame. He was clearly passionate about his herd. After his story we went outside as it was too hot and outside it was a barmy minus 15 degrees! Must say it is surprising how you get used to the cold with the right gear on. After a bit of reindeer feeding we parted company and went home looking forward to our next meal. Will it be reindeer I ...
