Mikhail inside the four-wheel-drive van that we hired with a driver to take us outside of town to collect our snow samples. Mikhail worked at the time with our Russian colleagues at the Arctic and Antarctic Research Institute in Saint Petersburg. He came with us on the first two trips and was very helpful as a combination translator (he had studied at Reading, in the UK, and spoke excellent English), guide, and scientific assistant.
