Are they real?
Can you describe a Gypsy?
And do they have their own language. I find it interesting.

Gypsy's are travelers. They don't belong to any specific nationality, they are found all over Europe. They are technically Romani people that might have been Hindu, and settled in England around the 15-1600's. But nowa days, it's a general term for people of a wandering race. My dad lived w/ Gypsies in Spain for about 7 years, & learned the art of flamenco guitar. Some they're still around.

Yes- they do have their own language. They are considered *separate* in any country they live in. Often they are blamed for anything that goes wrong in the community they are currently residing in. Their code of conduct is different depending on whether they consider you a friend or not- and since many peoples do not consider them *friends* they behave with their outsider moral code of conduct- which has a more fluid belief regarding belongings etc ... the term *gypped* is actually quite rude and shouldn't be used any more than any other racially derived term that is offensive.
