Amos Chapple who is a photographer by profession decided to go on a two-day journey from Yakutsk, the frozen major city on Earth, to see how it is to live in the coldest place on Earth.
“I was wearing thin trousers when I first stepped outside into – 47 °C (-52°F). I remember feeling like the cold was physically gripping my legs, the other surprise was that occasionally my saliva would freeze into needles that would prick my lips”, the photographer told to weather.com.
