Oh, I do love technology!
Soon after arriving, my husband ran into this interactive map of Chisinau and it’s really great. It shows the major regions, streets, bus and Mtaxi (mini van) lines, and places for shopping, entertainment and such.
I just don’t know how reliable some information, such as the Mtaxi line, is though. It seems very convincing but I still need to check them out. I did get on the Mtaxi once already by asking people who were waiting in a corner and asking for their help to tell me when my stop is coming since there is no indication for that. So, in the future I would always need to ask until I get to know certain areas by heart. People are nice about helping out, and the fare for Mtaxi rides are only 3 lei! ($1.00=11.7 lei – dec 12,2011).I really enjoy the “Find Street” button. It lists the streets by alphabetical order and shows where it is. Handy dandy!
Now, I wonder if there is a specific route map for all the transportation system here, so I can have them everywhere and so I don’t have to memorize the map..?

It’s about 43 F outside, I’m inside my apartment with my daughter A running and jumping on the couch, and I’m trying to stop her but it doesn’t work.
