As promissed, here are some photos of the celebration from Oggún Addá Araí. He outdid himself working all afternoon to have a great meal assembled with literally no help from me or his father.
He was careful in the preparation of the amalá ilá and the product was so good that it was hard not to want to eat all the tasty okra cooked in spices and epó or palm oil.
Oggún Addá Araí also worked hard on getting a nice batch of coconut candy done for Yemayá, his orisha mother and also placed a small cake in the shape of a dog to honor Oggun.
Enjoy the photos!
