Visiting Danish friends who were living there

In the Easter 1999 I were visiting my friends in Karasjok, Finmark
(the sami region of northern Norway).
I brought my cross country skis, and we had some great trips in the snowcovert landscape.
One month before I arrived to Karasjok they had a new low temperature record - they measured minus 51 degrees centigrade in this region. The locals told me that if you through a cup of boiling water in the air outside it would fall down as ice crystals!! In the 2 weeks I was there the temp. was about minus 25C but we also experienced only minus 5C. We made many trips on our skis with my friends 3 children (on sledge).
On this trip I saw Northern Lights for the first time - fantastic! - but unfortunately I didn't get any good photos with my old camera.
