I've been three times in Russia. The first time was in august 2015, wen we traveled for the first time to Solovki. Later on that year, in november 2015, I was invited to participate in the Dialogue of Cultures in St. Petersburg. And finally, my last visit was in April 2016, again with Juan Manuel Castro Prieto, in our last trip to Solovki. Every time was special, but the last time was remarkable. To have the chance to see the White Sea frozen, to be more intimate with the people of Solovki and to become good friend of some of them is something difficult to forget.
