Life In The Moldavian Countryside

Life In The Moldavian Countryside

This post is about life in the Moldavian countryside, about ordinary villagers who work hard to the benefit of the country’s economy. Blogger 3boi has visited some of them and found that the people are thinking of upcoming elections in autumn 2015, they actually have a choice, to be with Europe or with Russia. Young people mostly tend to look west, older ones tend to support pro-Russian politics. In fact the results of the elections are already known, but it’s hard to say how they will change the life of these villagers. Perhaps, no matter what, they still will be hospitable and cheerful. They cook tasty food and drink wine instead of water, it’s a part of their culture, it’s going to remain unchanged.

Hominy has always been considered to be the food for poor people but they don’t make it often now – shops have a big variety of products. Hominy is made from corn, salt and water, but with a string.

  1. I might enjoy living there. They make their own fun and socialize with each other. Those are mostly lost social functions in the US
