The Ghetto, Ashdot Yaakov Ichud, Israel. My time on the kibbutz

We have been sorting the attic out and 30 years of storage. Most is going to the charity shops or tip but some things just can't be disposed of. This is a photo I was given when my friend and I left the kibbutz we had worked on for 6 months nearly 40 years ago! This was our accommodation - very, very basic rooms with a shower block at the end. I have such fond memories of my time there and we still have reunions every couple of years all over the world with the friends I met and their partners. We were supposed to be hiring cottages in France this year but it had to be cancelled. I look forward to our next reunion once covid is over!
what a very special memory. so great that you are all still in touch!

The beauty of prints is that anyone can enjoy them and they bring back so many memories.

Thank you for sharing your memories of such an important time in your life. These sort of pictures are truly what makes 365 such a wonderful portal. What a piece of history too, I am glad that you can look back with such joy! I'm adding to my faves as it is such a historical document. Thanks again for sharing. :)

I have been to Israel three times but have often thought it would be an amazing experience to live and work on a kibbutz. They have developed greatly in the 40 years since you were there. And how wonderful that you are still in touch with your fellow workers! I love both personal history and national history tied in to this shot- fav!

What a lovely photo to stumble over. You must have bonded well to still be meeting up with everyone. Travelling does that, I'm also still in touch with many friends I met while travelling abroad.
