The Burmese palm reader warned me not to invest, or date women, until April. "You will be very unlucky." And to stay in after 9pm, "unless you go out with a friend." After referencing a chart in a book, he decided selling cars would be a good career.
"Do you have any questions for me?" he asked.
I couldn't resist.
"What does the future for Burma look like?"
He froze. He looked at my minder. My minder looked at me. No-one said anything, and they stared at each other, unsure of how to
respond. Finally, the fortune teller spoke: "It will not be good."
They both laughed, nervously, then my guide ran off to pee.
