What’s the difference between a “real” Nazi and a Romanian in Pridnestrovie spewing anti-Semitic stuff in public and consistently using the Holocaust name for the place where she lives?
Instead of me constantly talking about Pridnestrovie, I thought it worthwhile to let all of you see the country.
Pridnestrovie is a peaceful, multicultural society where all the different groups get along and have a generally positive attitude towards one another. That’s the official finding of the United Nations.
I certainly like Pridnestrovie. But maybe I’m crazy. Maybe I’m weird. Maybe I’m a total idiot who doesn’t know what he’s talking about.

As long-time readers know, my life has taken a lot of strange twists and turns. But the one thing I never ever thought I’d be saying about myself is that I am the world’s greatest expert on Transnistria. Yes, I know. I realize that the topic is boring or irrelevant to 99% of my readers….
