After my 2008 research trip to Romania, Moldova and Transdniestr, I put together a slideshow of the good, bad, funny and awesome parts of these destinations. This is but a tiny taste of my nearly two cumulative years living and traveling in the region.
Music is by wildly popular Moldovan band Zdob si Zdub. The song is about a gypsy (sung from his point of view) who was abducted by aliens and spends his life roaming the universe and though he can chose to settle in any of the amazing places he visits, in the end, he decides to return home. I love that story, partly because it’s exactly what I did.
