Moldova, Photo essay

Hristoforofca, Ungeni

A few weeks ago I traveled to a small village in Ungeni raion of Moldova to buy a Turkey. The village was lovely and it made me wish that my service had been spent in a village (the grass really is always greener).

We were welcomed with traditional Moldovan hospitality. The village was lovely and it was a great day. See pictures below for the story of the day.

About I think about that every day

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