Last night, stayed at another MET restored Saxon village home, dating probably hundreds of years …. Will surely miss all this history when I am back home again …. Pictures tell a better story than my mind is currently capable of … Managed to find some gypsy peers today …. Alex has a rather typical European and certainly a Romanian attitude towards the Roma Gypsy …. ie, something similar to what most Canadians harbor towards our Native Canadians …. Ummmm, that would be a touch of racism perhaps? I have developed, over many years, many experiences, a far more compassionate, accepting attitude …. being fully aware and prepared for and knowing well in advance, that most gypsies are indeed light fingered in crowds and yes, they often beg …. I had fun with the group in a little village despite Alex “tut tutting me like an old lady”, and had me wondering if we had experienced a role reversal?” …… Alex provides much laughter daily :).
