The Tsymlyanskoye Lighthouse (Try Saying That Quickly Ten Times)

on July 30, 2013

Ignore the title, try saying it quickly once! This card comes from Marina in Moldova and she tells me that this fantastic lighthouse can be found on the Tsymlyanskoye Reservoir in Russia. She tells me that Moldova used to be in the Soviet Block (which I knew) and that as such it has a lot in common with other ex-Soviet countries. Its wildlife is apparently very similar to Romania, the Ukraine and Southern Russia. Marina herself is Russian and her husband is Moldovan and she says she moved to Moldova after their wedding, twenty five years ago but that she still doesn’t feel at home there – mainly because she misses the sea. I can understand missing home, but it does seem a beautiful country! What a great and informative card too!

    The name looks weird because it’s transliterated; it looks less scary when it’s written in cyrillic and it’s really easy to say it… even 10 times. 😛
