Fortune teller handbills

I got off the subway at Plaza Egaña a couple months ago and dodged a handful of people passing out fliers. Despite my best efforts, I ended up with one. I stuffed it in my bag and didn’t look at it until weeks later. When I did it struck me as pretty funny. It’s an ad for a fortune teller/changer. Here’s the original handbill in Spanish and a translated English version that I whipped up.


Tarot card and palm reading stands are pretty common in the downtown Plaza de Armas, though I can’t say they all make such a good sales pitch.
