Mitu meets everyone with a friendly smile
This is Mitu he belongs to the roma minority in Romania. I met him at the railway station in Linköping two years ago. Mitu travelled to Sweden in order to get some extra money to his family. He sat in a spot at the railway station and he met the people who travelled back or forth with a smile and a friendly greeting with the hope of getting a coin or two. I used to sit down and have a friendly chat with him every now and then.
Mitu went back to Romania in august 2014 and I haven't seen him since then. Everything is ok with Mitu after what I heard from a friend who also know him. I hope that I will be able to meet him again in his village in Romania.
