I have a small obsession with cemeteries.
I always, always, always visit the local cemetery when I get to a new town.
I prefer the small town cemeteries in Latin America because they are simple and colorful. You get the feeling that people visit their loved ones much more frequently because the graves are always decorated and clean. The decorations are usually personal items, photos, or homemade adornments, showing that people take the time to make something special.
Despite being a large-ish city, the cemetery in Sucre did not disappoint.
There are lots of adornments and color.
What I did not expect was the grandeur in some areas.
It reminded me a little of the Recoleta and Chacarita cemeteries in Buenos Aires.
The old flowers are put into piles making room for new ones.
There is a lot of new Construction.
Even though there is an old, historical feel in most of the cemetery, new buildings are going up.
