Welcome to Moldova!

Tomorrow will mark one year since I left home and arrived in Moldova. To celebrate, tomorrow I will go to the airport in Chisinau to welcome the new volunteers, the 29th group of Peace Corps Volunteers to come to Moldova. In their honor, and in honor of the place I’ve called home for almost a year, here is a collection of photos that offer some insight into life in Moldova. These pictures were sent to me by a Moldovan friend.

Fields of sunflowers cover the Moldovan countryside in the summer and fall. It's one of my favorite things here.

About I think about that every day

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

  4. Hey I have a close friend who is in the M29 group and was wondering if I could e-mail you or get your perspective on what it has been like so far in Moldova. Thank you 🙂
