Santiago Cemetery

2.5 million people were laid to rest in the Santiago Cemetery.

It’s an evocative place.

I was there on an excellent group tour. Our guide made the place come to life.

Catholic families visit their dead relatives often: birthdays, death days, holidays, Christmas. They leave gifts behind.

Rich families, companies and social groups have huge memorials.

Some are tacky.

This is my favourite photo from the visit.

If you get a chance to spend eternity here, ride in style.

Life is short. Enjoy it while you still have it.
