Much too many years ago we had “new neighbours” move in next door to us in Regina, Saskatchewan. They were, in short order, very dear friends and we learned, the best neighbours anyone could hope to have. I remember thinking, at the time, just how lucky we were they chose the house next door. Nothing lasts forever and ultimately we both moved away. Our friend moved to Ukraine. He has blogged off and on since he moved there and the topics have been wide-ranging. I had always enjoyed the pieces about everyday life in Ukraine in times gone by. We couldn’t have predicted how events would unfold in the recent weeks. Most recently many of the blogs focus on the situation in Ukraine and Crimea.
I do wish they lived next door again. In Canada.
