A few weeks ago when the weather was nice we took a walk to the neighboring village, Nemțeni, just down river. In the summer there were several floods that destroyed some of the villages located alongside the Prut. A part of Nemțeni was destroyed along with other villages further down river. The government is in the process of constructing new neighborhood-like homes for the families affected, and a community of these homes is located in Nemțeni. The community reminds me more of a low-end Ivory Home construction project you’d see in the states. It’s not something you would expect to see in Moldova.

And this is the view coming back into our village from the south. These hills are going to be great for sledding in the winter.
