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

Rich in Heart

Leave a comment

A Moldovan man that I met earlier today was asking me how I liked Moldova, a very common question, so I have an answer I use often.  I like it very much, and the people are great (and I am being serious when I answer).  He then told me that “Moldovans are not rich with money, but they are rich in heart.”  I thought that was a very correct assumption, even though most Moldovans don’t have a lot of money they are some of the most hospitable people you will meet.

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!
