Toreiz man bija 11

On the way to freedom

I was 11 at that time. We had to drive to Panevėžys from Mažeikiai, which took us half a day instead of 2.5 hours just because the road was packed with vehicles going the same direction.. I remember the excitement and joy in the air, children waving to me and I waving back to them as the cars were passing each other. Some cars were driving on the fields next to the road as there was not enough space left. As we reached the destination, the climax for me, standing those 10min wasn’t as exiting as driving towards the point we were supposed to stand. I will always remember the journey and the atmosphere on the way.
