Dette kommer dere til å gjøre
I really want to immerse you in a full three hours religious experience. We will meet here in Amarillo B&B, after lunch, and once we have introduced ourselves, we will open the experience according to the will of the Orishas, through the oracle of the coconuts. The god Eleggua will then tell us what are the perspectives of the day and I will explain the importance of this god in our religion. Meanwhile, I would like to offer you an Afro-Cuban cocktail. With such an introduction I think we will all be ready to enjoy the best part of the cake. In the Afro-Cuban religion there are four basic rites that you should not miss; If nobody has told you, I intend to show them to you, and these are: a) divination, b) possession, c) sacrifice and d) initiation. My intention is to take you to a house where a big religious party is having place and there you will see both divination and possession. In the way to the feast we will pass by a religious item shop so you can apreciate all the arts and craft involved in Santeria. At the end you can stay with me and I could also offer you a reading with the shells if you wanted to, which would not be included in the costs of the experience. Nothing like the person-to-person contact to open the gap to a true experimentation of Afro-Cuban religiosity.
I am a Cuban Santero, which means that I am one of those people initiated in the Afro Cuban religion also known as Santeria or "Regla de Ocha". So I had to dress on white and use a lot of colorful necklaces during a whole year to become a priest of the Orishas, something that put me in the right position to solve all your curiosity about those persons you see in full white here in Santa Clara or in bigger cities like Havana or Matanzas. I love to talk about my traditions because I think that is one of the ways to clear up the image of a culture frecuently misunderstood. I can express myself clearly in both English and Spanish, and I am what some of my friends recalls as a very knowledgeable person without being an annoying one ;):)

We will meet at Amarillo B&B, the boutique bed and breakfast where I work. Here we will carry out the first part of this experience: the ceremony of the divination of the oracle of the coconut. Then we will go to a store of religious articles, just around the corner. Finally, a local transport will take us to another house where the party for the Orishas takes place: the bembé.
