When the sun sets, the atmosphere is calmer and the air is full of religiosity. A woman throws a tree perfume made from the leaves of "parole trois" (three words) for good luck, while praying with folded hands and turns around the trunk. Near the falls, men and women sell candles, blue and white beads represent the loas and images of Our Lady of Miracles. The drums play syncopated rhythms, and some people go into a trance, talking loudly and moving frantically. Beyond the stereotypes, which describe pure voodoo as black magic rituals with dolls, animal sacrifices and undead, this is basically a peaceful religion, which the rites are a mystical experience for the uninitiated.
