Pyramiden had some amazing amenities for such an absurdly remote place. Just a few hundred miles from the north pole, and yet they'd even had a pretty well stocked library. I practiced reading cyrillic script - it was the first time I'd seen it on my travels since my last visit to Serbia. I can't understand any of the languages that use it, but sometimes the words are clear enough. So I could see that the library had sections on geography, architecture and sculpture. And stroitel, whatever that might be.
