    I was just wondering if anybody has ever met any real Gypsy's that live the Gypsy lifestyle. I have met and spent a few day's with some many years ago in eastern Europe, I thought they were so cool because they were the real deal, living in Caravans and traveling everywhere. So if you've met any please share what you thought of these cool folks.

    Never met a Gypsy but we have Rainbow people. At least that's what they call them. They travel from place to place, usually live out in the forest when they are here and the ones I have met are always filthy dirty.

    Uh, Gypsy is a pretty racist term, you might want to watch that.

    The ethnicity you are referring to prefers to identify as Roma.

    Quote:Well I don't know the exact political term for the ethnicity but that is how they refer to themselfs as and that good enough for me, and of course this was in the very early 80's when folks wern't so caught up in political correctness, anyway the Caravans I was talking about are just really a whole group that travels together in different types of vehicles they live out of. They don't work or have any visible means of support hence all the traveling.
