I've got this recommendation by email and thought it would be a nice add to the site and, hopefully, a support to the project: "www.neohumanist.org. If you will look under " projects- Castania tourist pension" you'll get a good idea about how it looks. Also this website gives nice information about the sunrise and rainbow. I think it deserves a bit of support and it is a great place for tourists to stay. The houses are cozy and well kept. They have a shower and food is available or you can cook yourself. Still pretty close to Chisinau but also to other nice places, like Capriani"

Anyone who wrote between June 18 and 31 and to whom I didn't reply, please, send it again, as it's more likely that your email was lost. Sorry for the inconvenience!

Kris, Lisa and I went to visit my relatives in Moldova for the Orthodox New Year, January, 14. The flight was a big challenge for us and our baby, but seeing my mother Katherine and my cousin Lena with her family and all of my friends and relatives was a big delight. Besides, there was a lot of snow in Ivancea when we came and Lisa went on sleigh for the first time in her life. Read more about our trip and see some photos on Kris's travelblog
