In Samarqand is an astonishing gypsies' block and if you have a chance to be in this city you just have to visit it!
Formerly this place used to be inhabited by Jews but when they left it was settled by Gypsies.
Uzbek Gypsies are rather sweet and kind people. They say that being given too much money they give a change. Though, some beggars spit if you refuse to give them money.
