Gypsy kids

This is not a family with two kids. The kid on the right is a Roma (Gypsy) kid who approached this woman because she was having a pretzel and she gave it away to the kid. The woman's own kid is hanging off her husband's back (you can see the feet dangling).

Roma (do not confuse with Romanian) kids in Romania were awesome. They were so free and always happy and cheerful, roaming the streets on their own full of energy and laughter, super curious about everything and smart too. They are incredibly street smart and can take care of and fend for themselves from a very tender age. Do not mistake one of these kids for a kid as you probably know it, every one of these little fellas can do way more than you would expect.
