Sundays in Chisinau are always very calm. There is little traffic and hardly any people out, except on the main boulevard Stefan cel Mare and in the parks. My theory is that Sunday is the day when Chisinauians go to visit their relatives in the countryside. I tend to spend a lot of time at outdoor cafés, and so also now. It is 30 centigrades here and after having spent half the day reading on a friend’s balcony, I intend to continue to do as little as possible today!
