  2. Hello! I applied to come to Moldova for PC and I have my interview tomorrow. I’m very nervous! I was wondering 2 things – are any PCV placed in cities at all, and what is the monthly stipend? I see in some blogs many people traveling on their vacations, but I don’t see how you could afford that if the rumor of $200 a month is true. Thanks! Melissa

    • Melissa,

      First congrats on the applications and interview – joining Peace Corps was one of the hardest and most rewarding things I’ve done.

      As to where you’ll live, part of the beauty of Peace Corps is that you learn to accept what you are given, since you don’t have control at all over where you live. In Moldova some PCVs are placed in Raion centers, which by US standards are small towns (from 50,000 to 6,000 people). While others are in even smaller villages. There’s wonderful things about each of these and with any Peace Corps placement, the best you can do is be open minded and enjoy every minute of it.

      The monthly stipend here is more than enough for you to eat and live comfortably, and even to save enough to travel to Romania or Turkey or some of the nearby affordable countries. Joining Peace Corps however is probably not the way to increase your savings.

      Good luck as you go forward in the process and just remember the best thing you can do in Peace Corps, is to say yes, to all the new experiences and to keep your mind open. The experience will not be what you expect, but it will be amazing!

      Let me know if I can answer anything else!

      Best,

      Leah

  3. Hi Leah,
    I saw your post on the night bus from Brasov – Chisinau. I’m trying to make this trip ASAP – I’m in Brasov now and need to get back to Chisinau ASAP for a flight!
    I’m having a really hard time finding info on the bus times…
    Do you remember what they were or have advice on where to find? (Problem: I don’t understand Romanian or Russian.)
    Please get back to me ASAP if you have any info—Thanks!
    Anne
