Ana Ghibus, who in the past as often travelled to work as seasonal labourer to the UK with her husband, takes a rest from gardening.<br />

High in the mountains above Poienile de sub Munte, said to be Romania's largest village, is an unnamed community of smallholders that some call<br />
Dardila's Hill, after the name of a former owner, but the young call it 'Facebook Hill'. Many of the inhabitants come up from Poienile de sub Munte during the summer months to raise livestock and tend kitchen gardens as there is no room for such things in the valley below, but there are a few who live there permanently. But it has no electricity and winters are harsh and the young dream of owning SUVs and the world they glimpse when they manage to get internet access on their mobile phones.
