Moldova update: arrival

Posted: June 1st, 2007 | Author: | Filed under: moldova, politics, travel | No Comments »

I am visiting Moldova to observe the elections here. The people are quite nice, the trip was mostly trouble-free, but still exhausting. We took the plane from Tallinn to Prague (my first flight on Czech Airline), from Prague to Budapest and finally from Budapest to Chisinau (see the photo, the plane was a small Saab, with propellers).

This is my first ever trip to Moldova, first time I stepped on the ground in Prague or Budapest (this time only airports, though) and the second time I have visited the so-called former Eastern bloc country. The first was Kyiv last year.

As there is free wifi at the hotel room (Yay!), I hope to write at least daily updates and thoughts that come to me due to me being here.
