Entry Description

Nearby the cities which get enourmous grants from European Union we have the place where the time doesn’t go. Some of the Gypsies work, but most of them are on dole. Here the real problem goes – even though they would like to go to work there aren’t any for them. They get additional money by selling mushrooms or blueberries from nearest forest or doing small works for communal cleaning services. Apart from the fact of being materially poor – I strongly believe they are happy. They live day by day without worry about the future.
