February: Peak Season!
When I meet Moldovan friends in London - most are on extended holidays - two topics of conversation always come up. The first is invariably about the Ali G show (to those not familiar he presented the MTV music awards last year) and a comedy character, he created, a Kazakhstan news reporter investigating English cultural life.

In spite of its quietness, modern Bender is an industrial center where in the years of the Soviet power there were plants of all-Union significance. Major enterprises exported their production to over 40 countries abroad.
