It’s not often that I leave a place early, but Chisinau was less than I’d expected and quite boring.
I flew to Chisinau intending to spend a few days before taking the train to Odessa, Ukraine. I still did the latter but not the former.
My hostel’s employees had some really crazy stories about lots of old men from the internet coming to Chisinau, staying at the hostel, and trying to meet a webcam girl from the internet. In fact, there was 1 there when I was there. Weird.
Chisinau isn’t that big, and I felt like I saw everything on the first day.
I discovered the Kirtan Cafe, which was a total lifesaver, especially the waitress who spoke a little English. I ate there for lunch & dinner that day and lunch the next day.
Feeling like I’d basically seen everything, I bought a train ticket to Odessa for the next day, which was a really interesting experience.
I was the only person in my train car, and the benches were old, wooden park benches bolted to the floor. Comfort was nowhere to be found.
Chisinau: it didn’t impress me.This entry was posted in Chisinau, Europe, Moldova
