Moldova: Shepherd With His Flock

I was walking along a grassy area outside the village of Giurgiulesti in southern-most Moldova and a shepherd came walking up with his flock of sheep. The song is traditional Moldovan music.

Moldova: Greeting

 Upon arrival in the village of Giurgiulesti, I was greeted by a group of students with salt and bread. It's a traditional greeting -- a way to welcome a guest after a long journey.

These young men are dressed in traditional Moldovan clothing -- with a beautiful piece of cloth that is under the bread -- it has been hand stitched.

 The boots are absolutely cool!
