Village Meeting Spots- Benches and Tables

As you walk along any street in a Moldovan village, you will spot tables and/or  benches near the gate entrances to the front yards of people’s homes.  Particularly on Sundays, you will find people sitting on the benches, chatting with their neighbors or in the evenings during “plimbare”, the more elderly will sit and talk to the people passing by.  It is a beautiful tradition that connects the community and builds relationships for young and old.   Here are just a few of the benches and tables that are in my village.
