Well, nomad would be a Greek term, so that really all depends on where they are residing and what language is native to them (if they prefer to use their native language).
I wouldn’t doubt some of them utilizing Greek, or English, but really most of them are probably going to stick to their own language and use their own terms.
I love the fact that some people want to police posts to spare themselves from any offense, but damn everyone else they are offending in the process.
I have family in Hungary and travelers are very common throughout the country. You see them, all the time and it’s perfectly normal.
People stereotype them as a bunch of criminals, but most them are not.
I remember passing a boy and his father by in the park, once. They barely had t-shirts to cover their backs and we were in the middle of December. It was freezing in the teens. I could feel nothing but sympathy for them. It was amazing how prejudiced my own family was of them.
I remember my parents telling me to steer clear of them, in case of theft, and I remember just nodding and going along with it (I was just a kid).
Honestly, they had all the opportunity to steal from us if they really wanted to— but, you know what? They didn’t even try. They didn’t even care.
I remember looking at this boy and his father and seeing how timid they were. You couldn’t see it so much in their facial expressions, but you could certainly feel it in the way they expressed it through their body language. They took no time in how they got around. They appeared equipped to run. While most people took their time strolling and enjoying the outdoors, they were well on their way to wherever they had to go and wanted nothing to do with confrontation.
It’s sickening how povert a lot of them are and it’s sickening how acceptable it is to judge them for ‘having the shorter end of the stick’.
Shit. If I had to fight to survive, I would probably be a thief, too. I wouldn’t feel content to lay around in a box, whimpering from starvation, when I could be doing something about it.
Screw the government, when you’re poor and dying. Screw a government that prevents you from ever getting a job and having a normal life, simply because you are part of a race of people that it doesn’t approve of.
Are you really a criminal for doing what is necessary to help yourself and your family stay alive?
That’s my opinion on it.

Of my occult tongue,
Resigning to winged
Darkness that ripples
All around me, sensually
Committing to birthing
A child who knows not
Whether he lives for
