Dummy's Guide to Botanicas
As we mentioned in our previous post, "Inside Miami's Botanicas: Santeros, the Devil's Intestines, and Steep Prices," the items being sold inside a botanica can seem confusing or even intimidating to the uninitiated. That's why we decided to grab our santero friend and have him explain some of the basic items essential to the practice of Lukumi. After all, he owed us for sacrificing a rooster in our bedroom one night while we were passed out. Let's just say we never went to another rave with him. Without further ado, we present our Dummy's Guide to Botanicas.
