La Recoleta Cemetery - Buenos Aires

While I catch up on revising the opening chapters of The Silver Cord as well as re-working A Map of Heaven (yet again!) I wanted to share photos from my trip around South America.

La Recoleta cemetery is probably most famous as the final resting place of Eva Peron, however, what drew me through its labyrinthian corridors

were the incredibly beautiful marble sculptures that comprised its mausoleums.
This beautiful angel clung to the corner of one mausoleum.

A close up on the face is even more evocative.

A few of the crypts suggested a tragic death...a mother and child lost in childbirth...

A grief stricken father who tried to provide his daughter an escape from death's grasp

And the collective hope that all good dogs go to heaven....
