Seetkat: Basically a Muslim fortune teller.
And when better to visit a seetkat than to practice the Future Tense in Wolof?!
After whispering a prayer into a handful of shells, our seetkat told us each of our fortunes. Here's my life according to her:
- You are in God's good grace
- Your family is well. There are lots of people thinking of you in the USA
- You will have two great jobs; 1 in Senegal, and one in the USA when you return.
* You will have 3 girls in your life. I think she was implying that I will have 3 beautiful daughters vs. 3 gorgeous girlfriends, but I'm open to interpretation...
Anyway, to all you family and friends thinking of me at home. Thanks so much!
