Kara Wilkes in Moldova & Romania

Chisinau, Moldova

The capital of Moldova, Chisinau, was our first stop of the tour. We wandered around a huge farmer’s market full of fresh produce, clothing, grains… and lots of fresh fish.

Las Taifas was the cozy traditional Modovan restaurant where I ended up eating three times in three days. Needless to say, I thought the food was awesome. They greet you at the door with a small glass of homemade wine and walnuts. There was live music too.

A very old, raked stage made for an interesting first performance.


Bucharest, Romania

The bustling, beautiful city where we celebrated Ricky’s birthday. Our Romanian tour guide, Oana, was coaxed into singing a song for him and completely blew the group away with her incredible voice.
