FROM MOLDOVA , I TOOK THE BUS GOING TO ODESSA, UKRAIN AND ARRIVED AT FIVE O CLOCK  IN THE AFTERNOON . MY PROBLEM NOW IS HOW TO FIND THE GUEST HOUSE FROM THE BUS STATION AND I WAS ABLE TO DEAL ON TAXI DRIVER BUT HE NEED PICK UP ANOTHER PASSENGER . THE REASON I AGREED , THOSE TAXI DRIVER DONT WANT ME TO PICK UP , BECAUSE THEY ONLY WANT SHORT DISTANCE RIDE. THE TAXI DRIVER TOLD ME IM GOING TO PAY ONLY HALF AND WILL SHARE WITH THE OTHER PASSENGER HE IS GOING TO PICK UP. THEN HE DROVE AROUND THOSE SMALL STREET IN THE CITY AND STOP IN  NOT REALLY GOOD PLACE, THAT MAKE ME WORRIED AND WE WAITED THERE AROUND TEN MINUTES AND FROM THAT DOOR WE ARE WAITING THEN ITS A GIRL WE ARE WAITING IS A TEACHER DOING TUTORING AND THAT MAKE ME RELIEVED ,BECAUSE I HAD IMAGINING ALL THE WORST THING TO BE HAPPEN. THANKS GOD NOTHING HAPPEN.REMEMBER FIRST TIME IN A FOREIGN PLACE AND I DONT WANT TO BE CAUGHT IN THE DARK.
