5 Reasons Moldovans Are Awesome

My husband had to go to Moldova for work, and I tagged along.
  1. 1.
    They heard it was my birthday, so they got me a cake! They searched and searched for a chocolate cake (apparently these aren't easy to find on Moldova?), because I had mentioned I liked chocolate the day before.
  2. 2.
    Mamaliga (polenta) art.
  3. 3.
    American go-carts are "not fast enough" for them.
  4. 4.
    Everyone takes their shoes off before going into a house. I like this...friendships happen faster when everyone's wearing socks.
  5. 5.
    The security guard at the airport asked me to drink a little water from my bottle before he would let me take it past security. It's a tried and true method...you have to give him that.
