Photographer's Note

I met this man by chance in an alley of Rumsiki. He was really impressive... I crossed without stopping because his glance really pierced me.

Later I learnt that he was the village sorcerer and we suggested us meeting him. He is in fact a " Crabs Magician". Besides his quack's knowledge he uses fresh water crabs as divinatory tool.

The bowl in front of him contains some sand and some sculptured stones. He puts down three crabs there then closes the jar. Then he begins a sort of song which sounds very strange. After that he opens jar and looks how stones were moved by crabs what allows him to guess the future of his patient. I still remember the strong charisma of this impressive man.

I wonder if he knew that one day he would appear on Trekearth.:-)))
