I took this photo in August, 2011, in Moldova, at my Romanian tutor’s home. My tutor, her husband (pictured), and I spent the day in the garden collecting fresh fruits and veggies to prepare for an afternoon feast that we would all help prepare. Gheorghe made me try every vegetable and fruit their garden had to offer. Here, he just tasted a cucumber and was giving it to me for an official taste test. It was delicious!

My women’s sports club in Iargara, Moldova. I was inspired to start this club due to women being turned away at the local gym. The men believing women are incapable of working out. We proved them wrong! - Peace Corps Volunteer Jamie Lee Frits
