Gypsies are unique people. They live all around the world and consider one another as relatives. Some of them are poor, others are very rich. They never miss an opportunity to help one another. They have a language of their own and they don’t want strangers to come closer. In spite of that we’ll come to know some facts about gypsies today.
Soroki is a town on the north of Moldova which is famous with its medieval fortress and unusual gypsies who have been staying here for several hundreds years already.
The fortress is located on the picturesque bank of the Dnestr river. It has never been reconstructed or changed since the day it was erected. Unfortunately, it is closed today, so let’s go and visit gypsies.
On holidays Moldavian gypsies come to Soroki no matter where they were before that to see their relatives. They don’t steal things and don’t scrounge but work instead. Their women stay at home.
The house will be inhabited by a young gypsy boy who is 18 years old. But it is not the biggest and most beautiful house in the street.
Due to crisis many large houses are still under-built. Their owners occupy small houses nearby and wait for the tough times to be over.
Some time ago gypsies occupied places like that.
Many cars have Moscow numbers.
There is a lot of place here that’s why there is no need to demolish old houses which are just abandoned.
There are no houses alike.
These people believe in God and often go to church.
The owner of the house visited the Grand Theater in Moscow and liked the horses on the roof. Now similar horses decorate the house of his own.
The biggest house in the neighborhood belongs to the gypsy baron. He refused to give an interview free of charge saying that he needs to take care of many hungry people.
Other gypsies were very hospitable and were ready to be interviewed. But can they say they are happy staying behind the fence of big and rich houses being wanderers who enjoy freedom?
