In Photos: Père Lachaise


Here are a few pictures of the area surrounding Oscar Wilde's grave at Père Lachaise. I am not kidding when I say that this place is absolutely beautiful. It is a veritable city of the dead; there are allegedly over 1 million people buried here! There are tree-lined avenues with names and divisions grouping graves together. It is really a sight to see.

 I love the sweet memorials and the collection of flowers in various states of decay. Damn, that sounds morbid but it truly isn't. I didn't even scratch the surface during this visit because I was pressed for time, so I didn't get to walk around that much. Look at the variety! It is stunning. Some of these sculptures are truly next level.. I wish I'd had more time to check it out, because this experience was totally different from my last. The autumn leaves and the gloomy skies definitely added some charm. There is so much character and history here, I mean everywhere you look there is something cool. Someone once asked me to be his girlfriend at a cemetery (swear!), and I totally loved it. I'm a creep, whatever.

This is what a real cemetery looks like to me. It is kind of a bummer that the ones at home look so bland and boring. Have you ever thought about what you want your grave to look like? If not, come here and get some inspiration. I already know what I want engraved on mine, and that is Und die Vögel singen nicht mehr ("and the birds sing no more"). It's a line from my fav Rammstein song, duh. Anyway, enough about me and my ghoulish ideas. Do yourself a favor and visit! Tell 'em Snoop Dogg sent you.
