Photo by Heathcliff Omalley..Yakutsk 22 November 2007.Ethnic Yakutian pupils studying in a class at the Republican Lyceum in the city of Yakutsk in the Sakha Republic in Outer Far Eastern Russia. The school is based in the state university and offers the regions indigenous people the opportunity to take classes in their own language instead of Russian..Yakutsk is one of Russia's remotest cities which lies on a permafrost that never thaws, buildings therefore have to be built on stilts to prevent the structures heat from melting the foundations, causing subsidence.
