One thought on “Iyabo (The Initiate), Havana, Cuba – Photo of the Day

    I was told years ago by my Cuban family who are all santeros/as/babalaos that Iyabos cannot be photographed. This is a covert shot so I imagine the photographer knows this also. Kind of disrespectful in my book – especially if this photograph was taken by a Cuban: even if not a practitioner themselves, they would know. A tourist might have some excuse of ignorance but hopefully this comment will give all readers pause for thought going forward!
