Gypsy witch

In some centric and crowded places you will find gypsy women who want to read your future for some money. They offer you a little branch of olive to give you lucky. But if you don't accept it (it's not free of course) they give you the evils eye! So believe in spells or not, the best you can do is to avoid them and look to other side! Is there anything similar in your city?

En algunos sitios céntricos y con mucho turismo turismo puedes encontrarte con mujeres gitanas que te ofrecerán una ramita de oliva y leerte la mano a cambio de algo de dinero. Sin embargo si desistes, se pondrán furiosas y te echarán mal de ojo!
Asi que tanto si crees en brujería como si no, lo mejor es evitarlas y mirar hacia otro lado. ¿Hay este tipo de gente en tu ciudad?

No tenemos gitanas por aquí pero las vi en Andalucía el año pasado, estaban bien pesadas con sus ramitos de romero (todos mustios!) no dejaban en paz a los turistas.

Por aquí, en algunos barrios, se ve algún que otro homeless drogado o bebido con cara de loco y una actitud que, bueno, ya te imaginas...

There is always someone ready to sell people a brilliant future (or at least an interesting one) against some euros. But people are not ready to pay, why do they believe in «mal de ojo»? ;)

Yes, there are people who read cards and your palms, but I think are not allowed legally to make a business out of it. Unless, they have changed that rule.

hey thank you for droping by, Fénix and lv2scpbk (I can't say your name!)

GMG, no, I don't believe in witches or "mal de ojo" hehehe. But i find this people kind of annoying... Also I must say not all the gypsy people is like that...

Bueno, no siempre te echan maldiciones, otras intentan robar la cartera. Hace poco una de ellas intentaba robar a unos extranjeros, les avisé y me llamó de todo la gitana, maldición incluída.
Eso sí, me enteré de que pickpocket es carterista en inglés :)

Yes, we have people sitting on the street corners offering to read your future for a fee. Apparently, they must be making money because they all have a store upstairs.

There are 2 gypsies in my neighbourhood who go through all the big garbage bins looking for interesting stuff to sell.... my area is full of studios and artists so I can imagine they'll find something interesting!

Hmm, no gypsies around these parts that I know of!

nous n'avons pas beaucoup de Gypsies sur Evry, ici la diversite est plustot africaine, turque et asiatique.

we do not have much Gypsies on Evry, here diversity is plustot African, Turkish and Asian.

Here in our city, it is generally done through Parrot and cards, where the parrot pulls out a card from a pack & the final treatment is same if you are not interested.

The very first time I went to Spain I´ve been warned about the gypsys so I avoided eye contact.
I´m sure somewhere in my country there must be gypsy women too.

Dsole, "lv2scpbk" significa "love to scrapbook" (scrapbook = álbum de recortes; un pasatiempo muy habitual en USA en décadas pasadas, hoy día ya no lo es tanto).

En inglés es muy común sacarle las vocales a las palabras para abreviarlas, se ve mucho especialmente en las (patentes?) de los coches. Un ejemplo clásico: "gnfshn" que significa "gone fishing" (me he ido a pescar).

Dsoleeee, where are you? Taken by «mal de ojo?» ;))
We miss you...

I have been approached by many gypsies...both in London and Manhattan. I actually went for a reading in Manhattan...there was a huge gypsy family living in a one room apartment...it was very brave of me to go there I know, but I was so curious about their skills and tricks. :-)

Donde vivo hay una sra muy anciana que "saca" el mal de ojo. Es reconocida y muchos van a consultarla.

Es raro verlas en las grandes ciudades de Mexico, pero hay por montones en los puertos como en Veracruz, o en Oaxaca, a la mejor porque haya mas turitas alla que aca.

En termino generales no son agresivas pero si insistentes.
