His name is Caress and, as he told me, he is a "medicine man who walks with the spirits." I'm not sure exactly what this means, but he was a very interesting man whose wardrobe consists of numerous trinkets and vials which contain all sorts of odd things.To return to the picture, click here.
I asked him what was in one of the vials, and he opened it up and spread some weird oil across my neck, then did some sort of incantation and waved his hands around in front of my face, conluding with a snap of his fingers.
"There," he said.
"What does that do?" I asked.
"It brings out your natural scent," Caress explained.
I stared at him blankly for a moment. "Ya know," I said, "I wear deodorant to get rid of my natural scent." We both had a good laugh. Hahaha...
Incidentally, should you even encounter Caress and feel like taking a picture of him, ask his permission first. As he explained to me, if you don't ask his permission, he doesn't get a chance to lower his energy levels. If he doesn't lower his energy levels, he will just come out as a white blur on your photo. At least, that's what he tells me.
