Photos and Story by Anna (Submission was not edited and translation is rough)
This year I visited Calgary Canada. I saw beautiful views but the real excitement was when I met my friend I had not seen for 40 years.
We spent four wonderful days there.
In 1973 I went to Israel, before that I lived in Minsk Belarus. Lots of people left Belarus and other countries of the Soviet Union but were obstacles in the way that the authorities have made many problems for people who want to leave the Soviet Union. Persons did not want to advertise that they leave Israel so too. Felt it good with this but had no choice. I left with parents. I said goodbye to my friend but I wrote from Israel. But she did not get the letters and the communication stopped. Only in 2002 was renewed. I found her through her relatives in Israel. Be the telephone but we just met in the summer of 2013. It was like it was not that long. Separated girls and two women met with the families. We walked Calgary’s special landscapes. Breathtaking landscapes seen as Lake LOYIS. We enjoyed every minute together. These were 40 years and 4 wonderful days of my life.
