Across the boarder

Landed safely in Chisinau and Andrej was already waiting for me at the airport. Really cool to jump into a car with an Transnistrian number plate which is only allowed to move within Transnistria and Moldova.
We drove alongside nice allays towards the Transnistrian boarder - Andrej told me that I should not make any pictures of the "Russian peace keeping troops" - so we passed the tanks and then we were controlled at the boarder first by one office - he typed something into the computer and I got my passport back - then we had to fill in an immigration form queuing up for half an hour and then I was in.
But that was not all - we had to get the permit to stay longer than 24 hours in the country and fill in another form at a cosy garden of the immigration office
The biggest company here is called "Sheriff" -  supermarkets, petrol stations the stadium everything is named like this.
Now I am at Andrejs home in the middle of Tiraspol with a nice view in a country that is to recognised as a country by any other country - no man's land in the middle of Europe!
Looking forward what I will see tomorrow
