This is on EVERYONE's list, and with good reason. Once you get inside the cemetery gates, you've entered a new world. Not just a spooky world of the buried, but really and truly, a city of the dead.

It's really a beautiful world. With great architecture, and fantastic marble, and granite, and bronze sculptural markers. Of course, if you follow the crowds, you'll come upon the cemetery's most famous inhabitant, Evita...there will probably be some flowers, and lots of people posing for photos in front of her final resting place.

“The taste is completely different from a gummi bear, yet somehow familiar.”
