The Pole of Cold – How Much Is The Fish?

frozen

This song was played constantly in the car during my trip to the proclaimed Pole of Cold - Oymyakon. But I would refashion How Much Is The Fish? of the German singer Scooter into How Much Is The Cold? because the trip turned out to be very interesting and sometimes breathtaking as you see snowy mountains all around, fairytale forests, and… the cold! Its Majesty the Cold! It pervades everything! You cannot neglect it, otherwise you are in trouble.
