Hotel Cosmos

Hotel Cosmos
Found a panoramic view of the  hotel I will be staying at in Chisinau on Google Earth.  Cool …and it has a casino to boot  (ok not going for the casino!).  This picture is taken from the Kotovsky monument, which is in a little park across the street.

Grigory Kotovsky was a communist insurrectionist who led two rebellions in Moldova in 1905 and 1915, therefore he was a hero during the communist era in  Moldova.
From looking at this picture and reading on the web, I think I made the right decision to stay at a hotel.  I see a restaurant, bank, and the hotel is on the same street as a shopping center and museums.  If it proves to be cold in March, I want to be near everything, not have to hike all over town.
