Excursion to Soroca and Orheiul Vechi

Last Saturday, 17 EVS volunteers and 2 ADVIT coordinators travelled by bus in the early morning to explore Soroca, a beautiful city in the north of Moldova.

After arriving here in early March a number of things quickly struck my attention: the half finished and abandoned buildings, the cashier trying to give plastic bags with just about every article you buy and the excessive amount of casinos, kinda weird considering this is Europe’s poorest country. But I was…
