38: Good Fences Make Good Neighbors

One of the first things you notice walking through a village street, other than the fact that it isn't paved, is that all of the houses no matter the size have a fence and a gate. Just like the houses, the gates and the fences are always unique and brightly colored. In a country that has such a strong feeling of community it is quite interesting that Moldovans would feel the need for fences and delineating their property but the more I think about it the more it reminds me of Robert Frost who wrote that, "good fences make good neighbors."I'll have to translate that and see what Moldovans think.
