Last 100 Days, Days 45-41

As I’ve mentioned, I’m sharing a photo and a look back on my favorite memories in moments in Moldova for each of my last 100 days here.  I’m counting down, so here are days 45-41.  See all of my “Last 100 Days” posts here.

Day 45: Three of my host nieces spent about half of the summer at our house while visiting their grandparents (my host parents). I spent a lot of time with them playing, making them “English food”, and helping my host mom watch them. (July 2017)
Day 44: One day while the younger host nieces were doing something with my host mom, my host niece Valerica decided to dress up in my things. She loves to pretend to be a “photo model” and has quite the attitude! She certainly makes us all laugh. (July 2017)
Day 43: One of the highlights of my two years in Moldova was having the opportunity to welcome my American parents to my village. We spent about 3 days with my host family and it was so special to see the parents that raised me spend time with the family that has taken care of me during my time here in Moldova. (July 2017)
Day 42: While my parents were in Moldova, we visited the city of Comrat with my host dad. Comrat is the capital of the semi-autonomous region of Gagauzia. This region speaks primarily Russian, as well as Gagauz (a version of Turkish) and have a unique culture and traditions. (July 2017)
Day 41: Together with my parents and my host sister, we visited the Purcari Winery. This winery produces some of the best wine in Moldova and is located in the region I live in. We took a tour and did a tasting. (July 2017)
