Moldova Mosaic

Buna dimineata! (Good Morning!)

Last week when I was in Chisinau, during a break from training a few classmates and I decided to try out Tucano Coffee which is the most Americanized coffee shop in Moldova; all the employees speak English, they have wi-fi and the food and drinks and ambiance resemble Starbucks.

As we walked in, my friend saw an older PCV she knew and stopped to say hello to him. He was sitting with an older couple who introduced themselves to us. The couple was Dennis and Nova Maack, former Peace Corps Volunteers, who had served in Moldova from 2003-2005. After their time in Moldova they decided to found a non-profit called the Moldova Mosaic Foundation. This organization works to create jobs in Moldova, by providing loans for start-up businesses in Moldova. They have a great website, with lots of information not only about their organization, but also about Moldova, so please check it out – http://moldovamosaic.org/mmorg/.

About I think about that every day

I guess this blog will be a really long answer to the generic 'about me' question.

  5. Hey there, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility
    issues. When I look at your blog site in Opera, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!

    Other then that, very good blog!

  8. Appreciating the dedication you put into your blog and in depth information you
    offer. It’s awesome to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t
    the same out of date rehashed information. Excellent
    read! I’ve saved your site and I’m adding your RSS feeds to
    my Google account.
