Can you use a definition of Siberia that includes all of the Russian Far East Pacific coastline?

aha ... there's your big mistake ... never presume.

Now ... being a wiser man than your good self I never presume though I did have a guess that she meant Arctic Siberia not Pacific. Guessing is so much more scientific than presumption.

I don't quite understand the African reference nor Collocate ? Australian actress nicked ? I'm thinking maybe your 'complicate' got itself spellchecked ?

If we do say Arctic Siberia and presuming, sorry, guessing, that we are not too far west then going through the BS (at the height of summer) would seem to make sense, rather than across the top and down into the North Sea.

Yes, Collocate was supposed to be complicate!

As to the Africa reference, well, let's just say that east and west got confused in my mind.
