Mexican Cemeteries Are Gorgeous!

11 Feb

Don’t ask me why, but I have this weird fascination with Mexican cemeteries… I think they are just breath-taking! This was the cemetery in Playa Del Carmen, and I just found it peaceful, beautiful & unique. I tried to explain to my friend that in our cemeteries here there are no colors, no personal headstones that are hand-crafted colorful little houses and we also don’t have a celebration like they do on November the 2nd. They embrace death as a natural part of life and a beautiful thing..something to celebrate. ♥

I will be uploading more as I am going through them! Just wanted to share a couple of these with you, I am still so in awe of the colors and all the beauty of the Mexican cemetery.

    I find that the best is in Paris – Père LaChaise.

    Was there in Mexico

    Memorials on grave yards?

    I love them.

    Happy week-end!
