The NSLI-Y summer group in Moldova had a fun and creative way to celebrate their experience with host families via a day of athletic competitions and games in Chisinau’s largest park. Host families and American students competed in various games and sports on the beach of the park, while having plenty of laughs and fun. As a special surprise, one of the host mothers arranged for Moldova’s premier acrobatic performers to stop by the celebration and perform some of their famous tricks for everyone. Another host family arranged for a known Chisinau DJ to set up shop on the beach and play some of the modern and popular hits, while many joined in an impromptu dance party on the beach. Everyone enjoyed the beautiful weather of Moldova’s summer, the outdoor spaces in Chisinau, a city celebrated for its abundance of parks, as well as friendly games and fun with all the host families. Plenty of language practice and fun was had by all.
