New Orleans is something else. Like being at the Mediterranean, but still not. USA and still not. And because it’s located on a swamp its dead are buried in tombs over the ground. The graves are adorned with fake flowers – a tradition I had not seen before I went to the US – and the frayed fake flowers – eternally dead – adds to the atmosphere. Since the more famous cemeteries close at 3 pm and I didn’t want to get caught breaking in to a cemetery, these were captured at one of the less monumental and famous graveyards on the outskirts of the city, but, even so, it was well worth a visit.
