The „bodega” – originally meaning a sort of small wine shop – is for most of the Romanian villages the only form of entertainment, their only escape from everyday life. Lacking other cultural or social establishments, the bodega becomes an important place for the community, the site where people meet, talk, drink, enjoy the company of others, share their thoughts and problems, where they laugh. With jobs in agriculture at an all-time low, some people end up spending a lot of their time in there.
