Cimetière du Père Lachaise





Lots of famous people are buried in this cemetery – the list is overwhelming (check out the Wikipedia page if you're interested, and please forgive me for not linking – it's hard on my phone) – but I was content to seek out two individuals: Oscar Wilde and Frederic Chopin.

Ah yes. Good old Fred. 

After that, I just wandered. 

Quoth the raven, Nevermore. (Except I think that's a crow.)

I ended up taking a whole lot of pictures, so this seems like another good post to use a cut. Click the link to see more:





Pretty colors. 



This was the backside of a stained-glass window. 




Lots of sights like this one – pretty stained glass,
seen through the grills in battered old doors.
