Becoming one with the gypsies

So I want to learn about gypsy culture, and meet some gypsies.
My question was, how would I go about doing this? And how would I do this while staying in their good graces, I don't want to meet a gypsy and then just grill them with questions, I just want to see how they live, and learn of their culture.
Is that even viable? Suggestions, comments, questions?

My fellow train travelers,
I plan on taking a train trip up the West coast of the US. I live in SF and plan on visiting Portland, Seattle, and Vancouver (last leg by bus). I'm using the train so that I can take my bicycle. Also, I want to bring my own booze, pot, and drugs (I'll obviously ditch anything illegal before the Canuckistani border. I take the train regularly to Sacramento and Davis for work and have never had issues with Amtrak about bikes or drugs. I was wondering about your experiences with our beloved Amtrak and if I am safe in traveling in this manner.

I'm from France, have a French passport, a French driving license, and my bike and my car have French license plates.
I roam quite a lot across Europe. What will happen if I drive past the speed limit in other European countries?
- if I get caught by a speedcam?
- if I get caught by the police?
I got caught twice by a speedcam in Germany and nothing happened, but I was driving about 140 kph in a 120 kph zone, so no big deal. However, I'm wondering what will happen if I drive a lot faster. For example, what if I get caught driving 250 kph in Poland?
