BISTRITA, ROMANIA - SEPTEMBER 08: Kalderash Rom Maria 'Mercedes' Chiciu, 3, shows off her belly dancing skills while her grandmother Exspertiza Dumitru, sister Surprisa (L) and mother Adelaida look on at the field near the Bistrita monastery where thousands of mostly Kalderash Roma have gathered on September 8, 2013 in Bistrita, Romania. Every year thousands of Kalderash Roma from across Romania arrive to visit the nearby monastery to pay tribute to St. Gregory and to gather at the field nearby for a day or more of feasting, dancing, visiting and business dealing. Romania's Roma, many of whom call themselves tsigani, or Gypsies, are divided into different tribes that were once distinctive by their craft. The Kalderash were coppersmiths but today are known for dealing in scrap metal and metal products. Many Kalderash are among Romania's most traditonal and least assimilated Roma and most marry in their teens. (Photo by Sean Gallup/Getty Images)
