Q. What are the areas near Alaska? -Sue
A. We have two neighbors. Canada to our east, and Russia to our west. In fact, you might be surprised to hear that we are only 3 miles from Russia! That is the distance between Big Diomede Island and Little Diomede Island, one owned by the U. S. and the other by Russia. Maybe a tad too close for comfort? Well, not if we stay friendly!
We have quite a few high school exchange students between Russia and the U. S. My daughter who lives next door had a lovely little gal from a Russian ‘province’ year before last. It was so much fun to introduce Mosha to our way of life, and to learn more about hers. There were tears on both sides when she left for home. We will always count her a friend. -Bonnie
