Humbling experience at Holt CemeteryI had been to a few of the traditional catacomb cemeteries before but my incredible friend, and host, for the weekend really likes this one as many of the tombstones are handmade. The families of the people buried here often cannot afford traditional tombstones so they make them themselves. I’ve never visited a cemetery before that had such tangible sense of death to it. Some of the graves were only marked by bricks lined around them or pvc pipe. Very humbling.
