It was 1953, when Terry, a thirteen years old girl and her family move from a city in Ohio to an undeveloped area of Venezuela, near the confluence of two large rivers, the Orinoco River and the Caroní River with the jungle nearby. At that time, the country of Venezuela was filled with freedom, freedom for everyone. There was beauty everywhere. Much of the beauty was in the warm welcoming spirit of the Venezuelan people. Years have passed, life has changed for Terry but her memories and love of the Venezuela she knew has remained with her forever. A personal decision caused her to leave Venezuela and to move forward with her life the best way she could. This is Terry's story. A story that blends two countries together creating long-lasting memories. Memories to be shared and cherished.
