My Fathers birthplace

Before the Russians invaded, my fathers neighbors were cousins and family. He shows us the pastures for grazing, the vegetable garden. and Orchards. The original house with straw roof was burned down, so the cabin-like house was not there when he was a boy. He shows where the stables, barn, well, duck pond still stand. The closest city Drohobych, was 1.5 hours walk over the meadow and thru the woods. The out house and a recycled drinking cup are still ways of rural life in Volya Yakubova,western Ukraine
