My sister and her husband are Peace Corps volunteers in Moldova, a
small country nestled between Romania and Ukraine. In July of 1997 my parents
took my wife and me to visit them in Moldova and then on a 12 day cruise
on the Black Sea and up the Dneiper river to Kiev. Here are some pictures
from that trip:
Woman in cheese house. This is a scene from inside
the cheese house in the market in Chisinau, Moldova. What a huge chunk
Chisinau market. A view of the vegetable section
of the market in Chisinau, Moldova. Notice the man with the cabbage leaf
on his head.
Trash can on fire. While waiting for a trolley-bus
the trash can started on fire. It smelled terrible but it was fun to watch
the paint on the sides bubble.
Lunch in a village. We went to a village that my
sister and her husband had stayed at during their training and we had a
nice lunch underneath the grape leaves.
Weird hatching baby. This strange sculpture was
at the sea terminal in Odessa where we started our cruise.
