Andre turned to us to translate. "He says it's a fortune-telling guinea pig. We pay him, and the pig tells us our future." Who needs the Nevsky Cathedral when you can get a guinea pig to predict your future?Unfortunately, they'll never know what was in their future, as the card was in Bulgarian. If any of our readers happen to visit Bulgaria, keep an eye out for fortune-telling piggies, and make sure you have a way to actually read the card!
We paid out the hefty sum of about 25 cents. The man pulled out a box of of cards wrapped in very thin paper, very similar to that box of cards containing the god-awfully impossible questions in Trivial Pursuit. He held the box in front of the guinea pig. The pig leapt onto it and began to rifle through the cards with his front legs. He suddenly stopped, bit down onto a single card with his teeth, and pulled it out for the man to take. He unwrapped the divinely inspired/randomly selected card and proudly presented it to us.
