Ran across this... cool.


Check out this beautiful documentary entitled COBRA GYPSIES directed by Raphael Treza. Up until watching this film, I never knew that the Romani still existed in India. This film is created in a way that the subjects do not seem to be exploited for a story, but are actually given a chance to have their voices heard…Enough of me talking, peep the COBRA GYPSIESdocumentary below.

All photos by Raphael Treza

Oh man I was this close to posting something about this but you honestly did a better job at it then I could.
This's my favorite thing to watch. The tribe with the kids that lost the camels were bamf. And when they were coming home with the camels finally and the mom was yelling at them and then she started yelling at the journalists too! So friggin funny!

Happy seed day, sucka!
Heading back out again today. Gonna millaround the Rockies for another five days and then I’m headed east towards Chicago!
Hitching out of Coos Bay today. Goal is to get up to Newport, switch over to the I-5, then up to Portland by the day’s end.
Wow its been two years since i posted I've lived in a few cities since, but I'm living in santa fe now.
I am sorry for not updating! I ended up getting back on the road for REAL, leaving downtown LA via a bus to Barstow Friday night. Since then I have hitchhiked 5 rides, explored Flagstaff AZ, and am now near Albuquerque, NM. I’ve already learned so fucking much, made countless memories, met other tramps, ridden in a truck bed on the highway, and just been fucking blessed by the Universe.
Spending the night in Coos Bay. Hoping to be in Portland.
Just had 3 wisdom teeth pulled, my mouth should stop bitching all the damn time now... Pain meds? What're those
