Finally Here!

Yesterday I arrived in Moldova! My mentors met me at the airport and took me to my apartment, where I promptly fell asleep. I guess that’s what 18 hours of traveling does to you! Luckily this morning I awoke full of energy, and so my mentors took me out to explore. Here are some pictures of Chişinău city center and my apartment.  It was a nice day (not too cold) and so I got to stay out and see lots of things.

Tomorrow I am going to the ADVIT office for my arrival training. I hope it all goes well!

  3. Hi Jessica It’s a great idea for you to write a blog, thank you! I look forward to following your updates. Clare x (in sunny Ilkley!)

  4. Hi Jessica-

    Everything is so interesting! I love all the statues/monuments. Do you have your own room, or do you share that, too? How much have you tested your Russian, and how is it? Looks like you are benefitting from Orthodox Christianity: two Christmases this season!
    Take care, and write more when you can.

    1. Hi!

      I have my own room, which is great! I’ve tested my Russian a bit (enough to know that I have a lot of work to do!). However, I have been successful buying food and getting around by bus, which is a good starting point.
