Tuesday, Dani asked what I wanted to do, and when I mentioned reading about a famous cemetery online, we decided to go there. La Recoleta Cemetery is in one of the ritzier neighborhoods in Buenos Aires. It is where tourists from around Argentina and the world go to see the tombs of such prominent Argentines as Eva Perón. Somehow I missed that tomb, though. The place is huge, and you could walk around all day and still not see all the graves.
Endless aisles of tombs
Near the outskirts of Death City
Inside one of the tombs in a huge Palermo cemetery
Screw a plain old gravestone... remind me to have a mausoleum like this built to house my remains, if they are found.
A child of nature
A child of humanity
I did not understand where the light was coming from...
One of the cleaner looking cats...
Dani, sporting those darn shoes everyone here seems to have... All-stars?
Dani and a giant wall of tombs
Must suck to visit your dead grandma, stowed away 50 feet above your reach, eh?
Do you smile when among so many dead people?
Make mine like that, but bigger.
And no fake dead people on top of my body, please.
Dani and me
Inside another tomb, this one more well kept, clearly
People from everywhere come to die in Argentina, I guess.
