Ultimate Frisbee in Moldova

Last Sunday, we met up  in the capital for a mean match of ultimate frisbee with the Moldovan ultimate frisbee team, the “Flying Mamaligas.”  (Mamaliga is actually a traditional food here, similar to polenta.)  Apparently some Peace Corps volunteers taught some Moldovans how to play ultimate frisbee about five years ago, and the Moldovans formed a team and have been playing ever since.   (I guess some volunteers also taught them beer pong, and they loved it, something I find quite amusing.)  But these Moldovans practice three times a week, and, no joke, they are quite good.  They basically killed us.  I mean, don’t get me wrong, we put up a good fight.  But let’s face it.  These guys are professionals.

All in all, we had a great time.  And afterwards we hung out with some of the team, most of whom speak English quite well.  It was a good night.
