Today I met a witch doctor!wow!Such an experience. The things they practice are so weird and most of it just completely insane!! We talked to one man who used to be a witch doctor but has now changed. He now campaigns to end child sacrifice and confessed for the first time to having murdered about 70 people, including his own son. I could see in his eyes that he was truely sorry. He led us to another practicing doctor's secret shrine where he regularly captures children and brings their blood and body parts to be consumed by spirits. The sight and the smell of that place I just couldn't describe in words. The stench was almost unbearable.
The strange thing is that the doctors think that they are doing the right thing and think that they are chasing away eveil spirits. I do believe in evil spirits but I definately don't think that making these kind of sacrifices are helping anyone.
Robert has told me that we are going to be staying here for a couple of weeks, he wants to talk directly to a practising 'doctor' and also he has medicine to try and help anyone with scars and broken wounds.
This is a different world from home...
