Instead of a photo for today’s “Photo Friday” I have a short clip of a video of what it’s like right now to drive through Moldova. The fields are beginning to turn a golden color as the sunflowers are blooming. It’s breathtakingly beautiful!
Also, you’ll notice in the video the transition between driving on a not-so-great road to a newly renovated/constructed road.
During travels with my family we ended our adventure in the city of Barcelona where one afternoon of our short visit we found ourselves exploring Park Güell. This park was originally created/designed by Gaudi and as someone like myself who loves mosaics I found it quite fascinating and enjoyed my time here.
Summer is officially over and the cool temperatures have been a reminder to me that fall is upon us in Moldova. The summer fruits, sunflowers, and colors are slowly fading away as the brisk breath of fall greets the morning on my daily walk to work. The golden sunflowers fields have changed to a coffee-brown color and will be harvested for oil and seeds. Today’s “Photo Friday” image is to commemorate this past summer, which marked my halfway point with Peace Corps in Moldova, and to share the beauty that summer holds as you pass through the rural parts of this beautiful country.
When my friend came to visit we went to the old monastery where I took this photo of one of the windows in the side of the rock-cliff. The jar in the window is an traditional style jug used for pouring water or wine.
I’m beginning a new series of posts on Fridays as I share an image from my experience in Moldova as a Peace Corps Volunteer. (although, I am starting out the first post with a photo from my latest vacation)
