This monument is a Soviet era one that has been repurposed into a religious chapel. You can see the tower from both sides of the Dniester river and most of the city of Soroca. You can get to it in one of two ways: the usual one of climbing a few hundred uneven and ill repaired concrete stairs or the less used driving up the back of the hill. Guess which we took. We managed to go on a beautiful day and to see the countryside, including livestock, on both sides of the river.

Andreas is cleaning out his photo processing queue, so you're seeing a lot of old photos. These are from December 2013 when we went on home leave. We spent some time in Fredericksburg; one of the interesting things there is the Nimitz Museum. These shots are of the outside in back. The front looks like the hotel the Nimitz family ran at the turn of the 20th century. There is a Japanese garden, and there are also some World War II vintage amphibious troop carriers and a few small boats.
