This year's Lantessama's
holiday cavern was decorated lavishly again. The inside of the smaller one
of the two hatching caverns in the middle mountain was plastered with ice.
Snow crackled below people's feet and their breath made little clouds in
the air. It didn't matter that a few winter season and a couple of
