'''about hitchhiking in Moldova: '''In Moldova to hitchhike it is not prohibited or outlawed, so you can freely hitchhike without any restrictions. In order to hitchhike you must stay on the side of the road and raise your hand (so that the hand should be paralel with the ground), raising the big thumb it is not used, although the driver, possibly, will understand that you mean. Dont hesitate to stop any car you see, just dont create some car accident situation. '''language controversy '''

Most people will understand and speak Russian as well.
