Making a wish at the city’s fountain.
Norwegian tourists (chess players starting tomorrow) posing at the central square with the amazing fountain.
There are big Olympiad posters throughout the city.
Timeout for a rest.
It’s a long climb up to the magnificent church.
You never know what you might come across in Khanty! Suddenly the Danish team, who were cruising the city as well – big minds think alike – joined us for a chat.
Katrine is high on sleep-deprivation.
The view from the church. Below is the city with the endless flat tundra in the horizon.
Later Magnus came along for a walk to stock up at a supermarket. He’ll have enough orange juice for at least a day now. That makes our boy this happy!
