Moldova: Interesting experience

.
Well, I am now back from the Republic of Moldova and I flew out last Wednesday and came back the Wednesday of this week. I went out there to see my stepson and his daughter get baptized into the Orthodox church and also to watch his marriage to his Moldovan wife on the same day.

As you fly into Chisinau airport you see below how underdeveloped and green the country is but that is no bad thing. The airport is small but it does the job and when we got to Balti the town where my stepson is staying we got to our hotel which I found very good both in food, accommodation and the service of the staff.

Many of the roads are in a poor state but the better roads are financed by the European Union and are in a better repair. Balti the town itself contains many shops and markets also cafes and restaurants and in some ways, it reminded me of Spain or Italy and could one day become a tourist hotspot I believe but whether that would be a good thing is another matter.

Moldovans speak either Russian or Romanian in the main and I found them generally warm, hospitable people.

I have been to many places in Europe and also the USA but never been to Eastern Europe before and I would recommend the country to anyone who likes adventure, history or exploration.
