The explorers are followed by a Khanty girl and a Finnish student.
The characters are based on Olena Nemelkina, aged 15, and Herman Stenberg, aged 25, photographed by UT Sirelius 1898.

I'm Herman and I'm from Finland.

Hello, I'm Olena. I belong to the Khanty people and I live in Khantia-Mansia in Siberia. What's your name?
