There's Something about Mary

Stories and thoughts about my time as a Peace Corps volunteer in Moldova



I am getting excited for wine season to show up.  Hopefully I can help my host father make wine.  We have all sorts of grapes at my house.  These ones line the front of my casa mica.

O zi buna

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!

  1. mmm too bad those are wine grapes, I’d be reaching out the window every day to munch 🙂

  2. We have some other grapes too, really non of them are too bad, kind of tart. But I like it 🙂 The tomatoes and the eggplant are incredible! It is a good thing you are not here, you would have to tell people everyday that you don’t like tomatoes, (Nu-mi place roşii), I eat them all the time, and most of the stuff that my host mom has canned has tomatoes in it. I am super excited for strawberries next year! They were just leaving as we came this year 😦

  3. So pretty! How fun! 🙂
