    Post Complete Circle

    news.yahoo.com/ancestral-russia-lures-land-hungry-mexican-mennonites-182804491.html;_ylt=A2KJjamc28ZQZWMAkwnQtDMD


    "More than a century after Mennonite farmers left Russia for North America in search of new lands and religious freedom, hundreds of their descendants in Mexico are thinking about completing the circle."

    What is "completing the circle"?

    It means that they are thinking of going back to Russia, from where their ancestors came.
