Political Statement

You have to click on the photo to get it full sized to see the statement on the wall.  It says, "Besarabia e Romania."  This is a slogan you see somewhat often in both Romania and Moldova.  It means "Moldova is Romania."  Besarabia is what Moldova was called until after WWII.  There is a significant population of both Romanians and Moldovans that believe Moldova should be part of Romania.  It was interesting to see the slogan opposite the Marasesti mausoleum and so far west in Romania.
