This was the first person who we found that shared their compass and a little about what it meant to her.
Date: June 19, 2013
Location: Downtown Phoenix, AZ
Description: She said that what her compass meant to her was a reminder of her Gypsy heritage. It was really cool also to hear about this ancestry that we at AJE’LES INTERNAL COMPASS did not know that much about. Here is a little info on this below:
“The English term gipsy or gypsy originates from the Middle English gypcian, short for Egipcien. It is ultimately derived from the Greek Αἰγύπτιοι (Aigyptioi), via Middle French and Latin. It was once believed that the Romanies, or some other Gypsy groups (such as the Balkan Egyptians), originated in Egypt, and in one narrative were exiled as punishment for allegedly harbouring the infant Jesus.”
