Photographer's Note

Along the road to Sibiu under our TE meeting we stop for some photos of these gypsies traveling in their horse equipage. As they stopped for some minutes we also had the cance for some close ups of the family. In this one the father. In the workshop another version. You are welcome to say which version you prefer.

Maybe the gypsies is not the most popular subjects to present from Romania. But as a minority their sure have their place in this country. It is not easy to estimate how many they are, looking for info on the Internet. But here is some info found:

Although not officially recognized as a distinct ethnic minority, there is a sizable Gypsy population in Romania. The 1977 census documented only 230,000, but some Western estimates put the Gypsy element at between 1 million and 2 million, suggesting that Gypsies might be actually the second largest minority after the Hungarians.
