It never ceases to amaze me how many  elements fit into the puzzle of Paris’s history. Taking a walk through the Pere Lachaise cemetery was a surreal yet very cool way to experience Paris.

Walking by all of the tombs you’re greeted with many questions. What did this person do with his or her life? Did they make any discoveries? Did they love?

It’s easy to create a story based on certain graves, like this one of a man who died before he turned 25.

It was strange to take such pleasure in the graves, seeing them as pieces of art when you know that they represent something much more. They represent someone’s entire life, and this is how they chose to be remembered.

Pere Lachaise is a surreal experience, definitely. But a beautiful one nonetheless.
