On our walk down to see Greetingman we passed two cemeteries. The first is the British Cemetery and the second larger one is the Buceo Cemetery. I could not resist so Joe and I took a walk down just a few of the streets and I was amazed at the unbelievable statues, monuments and crypts.
The cemetery dates back to 1835 and has some striking religious and other artwork.
I was pretty perplexed at some of the statues, like the one above. Who is this of, the deceased? I just did not get many of the statues and then all the busts, I have never seen a bust of the deceased on his grave. They sure do it different here in Uruguay.
