Moldova Road Trip
10 day photographic road trip around Romania's sister country. It's like Romania before it entered the European Union albeit with Russian influences. Come step down the rabbit hole with me! We will meet in Chisinau and then tour the city for 3 days doing street photography in a tangential version of Romania(!) where people speak both Romanian (Moldovan) and Russian and then make a four day tour of the country visiting the countryside with homestays possible, a night in the the Transnistrian capital of Tiraspol--the unrecognized break-away region controlled by Putin, as well as the southern ethnic Turkish Gagauz minority area. Moldova is like Romania before its accession to the European Union without the checks and balances of EU oversight providing a unique post-communist adventure! If participants are interested in wine at all, Moldova boasts some of the great underrated wine of Europe and stops at Purcari and/or Cricova vineyards are possible, the latter of which stores over 2 million bottles in caves. The workshop will be limited to 4 students.
PRICE: 1500 euros.
