Where in the World is Moldova?

I almost crossed over the border from Iasi, Romania, into Moldova back during an earlier muraling project.  I didn't have enough time to really go there and it was not possible to get a visa in the amount of time I had on my visit.  I never thought I'd ever be able to get another opportunity for a visit.  Well, life has surprises.

On my second opportunity, this mural adventure in Moldova, I didn't need a visa and I had a whole lot more time.  When life gives you second chances, they should be savored.
