Interesting, to have lived so close to them.
A little-known fact is that they were exterminated in Germany and allied countries by the Nazis, as much as the Jews were.
Another fact is that they do read Tarot cards, and the origin of those cards was the paintings in the initiatory chambers in Egypt, and the name Gypsies comes from a diminutive of "Little Egyptian".
Thus they are card readers and many of them, especially the women, are clairvoyant, and have a second sense about everything.
They do really psychic readings.
The men also engage in other trades and businesses.
Carmen, it sounds like you could post some really interesting and informative discussions in here.....♥
Well, Linda, I will think of it.
It all began with my love of the Tablao Flamenco dancing.
John and I used to spend our New Year's eves always on a restaurant where they offered a show of Tablao Flamenco dancing, here in San Diego county, but then we went to Andalucia searching for the real thing and we were in the caves of the Gypsies, who were the best dancers, there.
Later I befriended a Gypsy lady here, and we are still friends, although we do not see each other as often as we once did.
She was very psychic, and I am also, even though I have no Gypsy blood in me!
Therefore we had plenty of topics to talk about...
