I have decided to show some details of this meeting location because at this town of KANGALASSY ( КАНГАЛАССЫ ) the road stops. Period! There is no crossing the Lena River except on the ice in the dead of winter or perhaps ferry service in the summer months. So this is truly a remote Siberian location.
The below link to Google Maps will take you to Kangalassy Russian Siberia where you can then (by pressing the - button on the map) find its relation to Yakutsk.
Let's all see where this post goes.
In 400 meters we will turn right.

In Russian Siberia, the heating of buildings is done with hot water. In the next two photos you see hot water lines.
Before the meeting, my friends drove me to an overlook where I snapped the following photos looking down at Kangalassy and out at Russian Siberia.
