Microstory 2010: Washington

This is a really short slide, because I’m not allowed to say much about why my papa went to Washington state. But I had to put something here, because papa did go there when he was 16. I don’t understand it all the way, but papa had a friend who needed a surgery that she wasn’t allowed to get in Idaho, or some other nearby states, so papa drove her up to Spokane Washington. Back then, she could have done it in Oregon too, but Spokane is actually closer, even though it looks like it’s farther away on the map. Dad says that she could get it in Idaho if it happened today, because the laws have changed, but this happened in 1989. Thank you for your understanding.
