From Mukdahan Thailand, Can Fortune Tellers see into the Future
Once at a temple in the countryside the seer mentioned to my companion that he was amazed to see a "farang" way out in that village. Okay there you go! If he could see the future he would have known I was going to be there.
And why to they sit there all day, all they need to do is show up just before the customer, I mean if they could see into the future. And if they could see into the future why not just tell themselves the lottery number. Have you ever seen a wealthy Fortune teller in Isaan?
My favorite recently was the one handed fortune teller. I wanted to ask why he let his hand get gone if he could tell the future, but let it go.
Another thing in Thailand is Oh well for lack of a better phrase #thainess. This from the Wall Street Journal might shed some light "In Thailand, It's Hard to Predict Future of Fortunetelling" Whatever the case I prefer to save my money for beer Chang and Somtam and just enjoy the moment in Isaan
