It was a quiet, grey day for a walk through Pere Lachaise cemetery. Peaceful, tranquil and beautiful – those are the words I would use to describe the cemetery. One may forget that he or she is in a cemetery if they only pay attention to the sculptures within the area. They are beautiful, and do not necessarily make direct references to death. At times, even the beauty of the sculptures may overtake the importance of the soul buried underneath it. By the way, who is Amirale Bruat?
