A Fortune-teller Told Me

A Fortune-teller Told Me

Tiziano Terzani

– Earthbound Travels in the Far East –

“Warned by a Hong Kong fortune-teller not to risk flying for a whole year, Tiziano Terzani — a vastly experienced Asia correspondent — took what he called “the first step into an unknown world … It turned out to be one of the most extraordinary years I have ever spent: I was marked for death, and instead I was reborn.’

Traveling by foot, boat, bus, car, and train, he visited Burma, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, China, Mongolia, Japan, Indonesia, Singapore, and Malaysia. Geography expanded under his feet. He consulted soothsayers and shamans whereever  he went, he grew to understand and respect older ways of life and beliefs now threatened by the crasser forms of Western Modernity.”
