    Thanks for that link, was quite an interesting story.
    My brother, a non-cyclist, once borrowed an old bike of mine, with a Spanish Peseta used on one part of the bike as a washer! He used it to cycle to his current girlfriend at the time, who lived several miles away. He didn't encounter any gypsies, but did take his chances in a brick bus shelter and slept there.

    This guy has his fair share of bad luck eh?! I saw these gypsy tents all across chile and gave them a wide berth..and bus shelters are a wonderful invention.

    You often make your own luck; like you, I would have given them a wide berth.
