Resolved Question: What could I do with
Now, I'm only looking for someone who has visited or lived there so I can get an experienced opinion.
Apparently, $1 US is 12.50 Lei. If I have $2,000 US, then I have 24,680 Lei.
$2,500 US = 31,250 Lei. I'm just not sure if I should convert that extra $500 US.
Anyway, alot of questions:
Is it hard for an immigrant to obtain citizenship? (stay there)
Do they have English to Gagauz, Russian, Ukrainian, and Bulgarian classes?
How many Lei does it cost to buy houses?
How long could I live on 24,680 or 31,250 Lei? (considering groceries)
Is sugar fairly easy to purchase? (only asking that because I'm hypoglycemic)
Do they even drive cars around in Moldova? If so, how much do they cost?
How much Lei would it take for someone to retire in Moldova? (never have to work again)
