|Tulips are originally from Central Europe and the Ottoman Empire – you see them on many carvings throughout Turkey|

|I was very disappointed to find out you are not allowed to take photos inside Barcelona’s famous Poblenou Cemetery, so I had to take one of the entry gate.|
|But sometimes those rules are meant to be broken…I prayed for forgiveness first.|

If you share a fascination with cemeteries like I do, tell me where some of your favorites are. Or feel free to leave me a commet to tell me I’m nuts and maybe should seek counseling.
Happy Halloween & Dia de los Muertos Everyone!
