Buenos Aires and The Recoleta Cemetery
With an extended weekend, we hopped a jet across the Andes, to Buenos Aires. First stop on the tourist checklist was Recoleta Cemetery.
The initial most astonishing aspect of the cemetery is the abundance of cats.
I think I would prefer not to think to deeply into why the cats are surviving so well.

The original layout of the site was designed by French engineer, Próspero Catelin.
Although the plan of the cemetery is interesting, the individual tombs show the most character.

I found some rickety scaffolding to scale in order to get this shot of the many adornments and skylights of the tombs.

Statues and Cats.

Likely the most recognizable name in the cemetery is Evita Perón. People are constantly arriving to her door, bringing flowers.

A less appreciated tomb.
