''Hitchhiking'' while standing on the side of the road and raising your hand (so that the hand is parallel with the ground) is used as the sign for locals hitching rides, mostly just some kilometres to the next village. Most drivers understand raising the thumb as ''autostopp'' and barely ever ask for money, if you're a foreign traveler it could be more common that drivers buy you food or drinks.
== Language controversy ==
Though the official language of [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moldovan_language Moldova] is called ''Moldovan'', it is really Romanian, identical to the Romanian spoken in [[Romania]]. Most people understand and speak Russian as well.
