I am Mike and my username is lostrom.
My great-grandparents were Coopers and used to travel the British countryside in their vardo but when they got old they gave up the life.
Their children married into gadje families but I've always had a feeling for the Roma in my blood.
A friend of mine (sadly now moarte - or should that be mulos? Not sure) was a Basque Roma and he taught me about 150 words of Romanes though sadly mande lalleri.
I live in Britain but I've always enjoyed my meetings with the Roma and have always championed their rights against the oppression that amaro foki (can I be bold enough to make a claim like that?) suffer.
Don was a porajmos survivor and he taught me so much about the leis-prala and other stuff.
Mishto hom me dikava tute!
