Hundreds of pensioners crowd three days a week, as early as 4 am, to get free bread from the Pensionersâ âOmeniaâ Mutual Help House in the Rahova district, Bucharest, reminiscence of the communist-era endless queues. Here, every week, a strange type of party also occurs. Beyond the sad looks, those several hundreds pensioners that stand in line crack a joke and chat. Pensioners wait in a civilized manner for Paul Ispas to give them the bread. Itâs a game of patience.
