    I had already known that the depiction of Voodoo in popular culture was exaggerated to the negative, that it wasn't a dark practice like it's portrayed in films. Still, the unknown is always a tad spooky, and I was a bit hesitant when I passed by an old wooden door with the word "Voodoo" on it. I decided to step in anyway.

    What I discovered was the opposite of anything dark, rather it was a relaxing, bright place. Everything was carefully laid out and labeled, and the woman working here was extremely polite and friendly.

    I didn't pick anything up, but I'm really glad I stepped inside. It's another lesson, for myself as well, that ignorance is the ultimate darkness in this world.
