In the US (United States), I like going to cemeteries because of the history that presented in the people that were buried there. I have couple of post about cemeteries i have been to in the US and some pictures of the people that are laid to rest there. So, I decide to go the a cemetery here in the Philippines. I was in Manila visiting Julieta’s sisters and there was cemetery near where they live at.
I do not find cemetery depressing, but when I went into this one..I found very depressing. Most of the people were not buried in the ground, but in granitic crypts or cement crypts above ground. I have very eery feeling about seeing that. There was husband and wife that die within few days of each other and that was sad and they had picture of them on the crypt. As I was walking though the place I seen sheep or goats in the cemetery eating grass, which i do not think that is good idea but…how knows! I saw on of the granitic crypts that was not being used and it had back part out of it. It was eery in itself just looking where they put the person at.
All-in-all I find cemeteries here very depressing unlike in the US…or down right scary sometimes.
Oh, on the Day of the Dead, I was on bus that went past this place that look like house, but I was really big cemetery..that interesting…
