Unexpected life in one of Latin Americas largest cemeteries
Over 2 million burials are estimated in Cementerio General de Santiago and yet life is everywhere. Flowers seem to breathe in every corner as brightly colored walls hold an endless labyrinth of shrines to loved ones. Not knowing exactly what to expect I was taken back at how many of the aisles where a celebration of peoples lives rather than a mourning of their death.
