Hungarian Gypsies In Romania

They love to show off their wealth with gaudy and kitsch objects that just whiff of over the top-ness. Apparently, most of the houses are just beautiful shells, with no proper connection to electricity and running water. The family will live in a tinier house in the back garden and just use the main facade to 'show off'. Romanians don't like them too much and consider them to be lazy good-for-nothings who use taxpayers money to live off whilst they get on with dodgy business like drug dealing etc. I can't believe that they are all like that and am fascinated by these capitalistic ideas of wealth and fame.

You summed up Romania wonderfully - it is a place which you will fall in love with if you give it time.

At the moment, I am trying to build up a photo library of great pictures of Romania, and I would be thrilled if you would consider adding one of your stunning pictures of Romania onto my site ( ), along with a comment about why you liked that particular place so much.

I love it when people show the country I love in such a positive way!
