You look like you could be an Quito, Ecuadorian of Central/Eastern European descent.

That's not me in the pictures. The couple are parents of Doctor Mike Varshavski:



Varshavski (Warszawski) seems to be a Polish surname, derived from Warsaw.

But he was born in Saransk, Mordovia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saransk

^ Nah, definitely potatoes - you can tell because they have a Colorado Potato Beetle infestation (very, very bad for potato crops - these people should be quarantined immediately! :lol: )

At first I thought you had misspelled "Moldova".

But apparently you spelled it right and its a separate place.

Am familiar with Moldova, but never heard of Mordovia".

Moldova is province right between the Ukraine and Rumania that changes hands between Russia and Rumania over the decades every time there is a war. And is now a separate country. Ethnically Rumanian - and speak the Rumanian language which not a Slavic language (as do all of their east European neighbors), but a Romance language (surprisingly similar to Spanish oddly enough).

Mordovia is like a thousand miles to the east of Moldova. And is the home of its own little ethnic group who speak a Uralic language- a group of aboriginal tribal languages of peoples of Ural mountain region of western Siberia.

But oddly enough both Hungarian and Finnish branched off from that family as well.
