Cementerio Alemán

I love the cemeteries here. There are long rows with towering stacks of caskets behind glass doors. Some are huge elaborate rooms that you can walk into and some are just white walls with names and dates of death.

Every Sunday families visit the graves of their loved ones. They clean out the fallen leaves, place huge bouquets of flowers, and light candles. It´s a calm place where I could sit for hours.

This is a sweet sign. It says, ¨Don´t steal, God is watching¨.
