A Warm Moldovan Welcome

On our first weekend in country, we went on a tour sponsored by the embassy.  This school is a project supported by USAID, and it's got some neat stuff.  It's about an hour out of Chisinau, and is both a primary school and a place to teach local craft.

The kids brought wine and bread in a traditional greeting and then they danced for us.  All the costumes were made at the school and are totally hand embroidered.  The white cloth was woven there too.  The main stitch is a plain old cross stitch.
