Saw a bunch while walking around Hungary. Was watching out for the little kids who I knew had to be pick pockets. Luckily they were more interested in the fact that my friend was of mixed race and were interested in what he was doing. We would stop to look at some shoes and they would come behind us and look at what he was looking at.
There is a gypsy "problem" where I work. They are called the travelers and come in during certain seasons. They set up BS businesses and rip people out of their money. All look the same and wear Jersey Shore like clothing.
They did that show about the Rom in New York. That was actually interesting. Amazing how they had their own real estate agents, banks etc. Because they primarily deal in cash, have no birth certificates and no credit history.
Those folks were nothing like the gypsy trash you see on TLC. These guys were all loaded. Each family had a business they were allowed to be in by the elders. The family the show followed had the psychic shop market and another had a scrapyard market.
