Recoleta Cemetery

Since the 1800s, the elite of Argentina rest eternally in an above ground cemetery in the famous Recoleta neighborhood of Buenos Aires. Coffins lie inside mausoleums of beautiful marble and carved stone, creating row after row of religious imagery and dusty padlocks. Tourists saunter among the dead, as once shiny graves fall into disrepair and once mourned souls become the forgotten.

I'm glad you all got a photo of a cat...I felt like when Maisie and I were there it was so beautiful yet there was a strangely large number of cats running around. Looks like you guys are having a blast!! Keep the pictures coming!
