If you’re ever in New Orleans, be sure to visit some of its historic cemeteries. You won’t find any grander above ground tombs in America, than the ones in New Orleans.
While you take a silent stroll through the city of the dead, remember that those structures you’re looking at are not churches
or chapels or mansions.
They’re just the graves of very rich dead people, who couldn’t take their wealth with them.
