Summits: 1340


I visited Moldova as part of a massive road trip with friends Jacob Kallman and Alan Buxbaum. The poorest country in Europe, the poverty was very real. The capital Chisinau had a nice downtown area and great food. Upon leaving Chisinau, we were pulled over by the police  for no reason and forced to pay a bribe to avoid prison. We’d read about the corrupt police here before we arrived so we knew it could happen, but we didn’t expect it to actually happen. I had trouble finding much to take pictures of in Moldova, there honestly wasn’t much outside of the capital. The experience of being in Moldova was well worth the effort though (and the bribe).
