5 things I have learned so far in Moldova

5 Comments

I have been in Moldova for a week now….quick post about what I have learned/observed

  • 1) House wine is taken in shot form, not usually sipped slowly in a glass.
  • 2) I have drank more tea (ceai) in the past week then I have all my life.
  • 3) Eu sunt Mary. (I am Mary)
  • 4) The Moldovan country side is beautiful, very green and the stereotypical rolling hills.
  • 5) Weird things remind me of friends and family in the states.

Overall this last week has been very enjoyable with lots learning and new experiences.

Pictures to come soon!

Hi, I'm Mary. I am orignally from Spokane Wash., where I lived for 20 years of my life. I went to school in Bellingham Wash, at Western Washington University and graduated with a degree in Business Administration. In June 2011, I moved to Moldova for the Peace Corps. In the Peace Corps, I am an Agribusiness and Rural Development Volunteer, and live in a town called Riscani, which is about 3 hours northwest of the capital city. I love Moldova, but there are somedays where I really miss all my friends and family in the States! Email me if you have more questions!
