Dinner In The Countryside

 In late April, we stayed overnight at Hanul lui Hanganu, a small resort in the north of Moldova fronting the Nistru (Dniester) River.  It's beautiful, even if getting there is an adventure.  We needed a break and to rest, and this place was perfect for it.  Here is what we had for dinner: zeama - a sour chicken soup, mamaligia - kind of like polenta, pork chunks - not a fan of pork, placinte with dill and cheese and not too salty, and bread.  We had kompot to drink.  Kompot is made by boiling fresh fruit in water and adding a slight amount of sugar, then chilling it.

The tables are on a covered terrace that has a beautiful view of the river.
