Flemish B&B owner Rembert (69) was tricked by water fortune-teller: “Charlatans eagerly respond to ‘drought stress’ in Provence”

Fleming Rembert Marynen (69) is trying to arm his B&B in Provence against future droughts and heat waves. He already had a well 130 meters deep, but on the advice of a diviner he had a second one drilled, now 200 meters deep. “I lost 6,500 euros. Not a drop came out and I never saw that sorcerer again.” Meanwhile, Rembert uses other means against the expected drought in the summer: “They are popping up all over the French landscape.”
