A member of a people that arrived in Europe in migrations from northern India and egypt around the 14th century, now also living in North America
. Many Gypsy groups have preserved elements of their traditional culture, including an itinerant existence and the Romany language. And as described above their name has been shortened and cropped down to gypsy and that 'little egypt' is now turkey ... etc etc.... but I know from Experience being half French & half Greek, i spent a lot of time in europe France in particular... and i can remember listening to these gypsies jamming out on the street until all hours of the night, and as a kid I would just sit, watch and listen intranced by the music.... I was in heaven, always happy music even on a sad song.... ironicly enough I have heard peoples misfortunes, being robbed, and assaulted, I think that Marvin Gaye
said it best "Nothing
so you had to do something.." because I've eaten dinner with the same paople who robbed you.... Sat and listened to their guitars cry, laugh , and sing...... Pick up
a Gypsy Kings album.... along with some books on european
culture.... Turn of the TV and READ!!!!....
