 so you want to be a gypsy...
the reality of the tale...and a story of woe...


  1. I think most of us like the fantasy better than the reality of it. But, I am loving these photos!(I for one enjoy an indoor bathroom) The photo in your last post is still
    knocking me out!!

  2. For sure, the fantasy of the gypsy life is definitely better than the reality. I do love the photos though. I too would miss the comforts of indoor plumbing.

  3. So very true... it has been Romanticized, especially in modern times... and the discrimination, persecution and hardships still exist unfortunately for the Roma and the Irish Travellers. But such a rich Culture is one that should be appreciated, preserved and respected... so perhaps the Gadje will begin that journey of acceptance & mutual respect towards the Gypsy... that is my Hope... bias is never pretty & I wish it did not exist against any People on the face of the Earth.
