Some favorites…

One of my favorite things about Moldova is all the amazing fresh fruits and vegetables. Right now it’s raspberry season. When I got home yesterday, my host mama was preparing some sort of raspberry preserves. It looked, smelled, and tasted AMAZING! Hopefully there will be some time that I can help in the garden this weekend, perhaps after language classes on Saturday? We shall see!Β IMG_8295

Here are some more of my favorite moments so far during my time in Moldova. Enjoy!

Have I mentioned lately how much butter is used in Moldova? Yes, this is butter (however, this big guy is kept frozen in the freezer and used only for cooking)

It's all in the details... this is the ceiling in my bedroom. I appreciate the artistry and am reminded of it's beauty when I wake up in the AM.

I’ve enjoyed seeing theses giant purple fluffs blooming along my walk to/from classes…

Although these things are not photo documented (yet) some more of my favorites moments from this past week include…

  • Dancing in the kitchen and learning the hora with my host mama and sister
  • Watching movies with my host sister (Madagascar 3 and Hotel Transylvania in case you’re wondering – each had a European theme too!)
  • Being able to order a coffee (sort of) at a local magazine (store)

More favorites to come later… until next time – la revedere!

    • Haha! Will do my best – I am grateful for all the walking. πŸ™‚ I’ve never seen the purple flower puff – it’s quite unique. I’ve only seen a couple… I think it may eventually turn into like a dandylion fluff after it’s purple…maybe?

  2. The purple fluff flower reminds me of the flower in the Dr. Suess classic “Horton Hears a Who!” Thanks for sharing all the sights, sounds, smells, and tastes of your new life in Moldova! πŸ™‚
