Tonight we went to a Spiritist ceremony called Dia del Yemanja.. or day of the sea goddess named yemanja.. It was really interesting. There were thousands of people on a beach a 1/4 of the size of GH or less... Many dressed in old white dresses, or white outfits.. those people went out into the water to bring offerings to Yemanja, or be baptised. Many went through cleansing and possessions, throughout the night. Lots of drumming, dancing, spinning, passing out, talking, telling of futures.. Lots of candles in the sand as altars.
