|Gypsy culture in Romania|
Gypsies, Romanies, Romani, Roma, Roms, or however we may want to call this fascinating population, are the nomads of the world. It is a truth we cannot contradict. The starting point of their emigration can be traced back to the 11th century, when they were beginning to relocate from India to the northwest. Furthermore, both linguistic and genetic evidence indicate that the Romani originated from the Indian subcontinent. The first written evidence of their arrival in Europe belongs to the Irish Franciscan monk Symon Semeonis, who calls them 'the descendants of Cain'...
"The students involved were thrilled with the experience. Videoconferencing sure makes the world a smaller place"
