Recoleta Cemetery

It seemed odd to me that one of the “must see” places in Buenos Aires was a cemetery. I thought of headstones. There are some fascinating cemeteries in Boston, where I went to college. I used to enjoy (? that sounds a bit odd doesn’t it?) looking at the stones, some of famous folks, but many not, and imagining about their lives.

Recoleta Cemetery was totally out of my experience and preconceived ideas about cemeteries; a city of the dead surrounded by Buenos Aires, a very alive city.

So for this week’s Which Way Challenge here are a few views from Recoleta, ways lined with Mausoleums, with the backdrop of a modern city.
