Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
In the villages, the drinking too much part usually comes during celebrations (weddings) and in the autumn and winter when there is not much work to do; and it's not just the youth. One particular story that stuck in my mind were the older women who'd get 'secretly' drunk everyday while their husbands and sons were working out in the fields.
