It is Vasyl’s birthday today. Vasyl’s house is located on a mountain, 30 min walk from the village. There’s no way to get to his place by car or any other vehicle. Only on foot or by horse. Vasyl was born on the same mountain 90 years ago. The video was shot in 2021.
Vasyl can’t walk down to the village anymore but he loves being on his mountain.
Vasyl’s life is pretty much the same as his ancestors’ life. It’s even hard to imagine what he has seen on his way but he’s one of the most positive people I have met when working on the Stories My Grandparents Haven’t Told project.
Well, there’s a lot to say about him but it’s better to watch the video below to get an idea. Vasyl has got a true story of real life in the Ukrainian mountains for you.
