There’s a phrase I heard once and I started doing a little research on it because I was thinking of writing on it — Katatraya stayeftika or in Greek κάτι τρέχει στα γύφτικα! (I think).

As I understand it, it roughly means who cares but I’m certain I’m missing a lot of the nuance. I also understand it translates to something like ‘there’s trouble in the gypsy village.’

Is any of this correct, R Tsambounieri Talarantas
