"Cimetiere du Pere-Lachaise" Pere Lachaise Cemetery - Cimetière du Père Lachaise Tip by malianrob

We came here to find the grave site of Jim Morrison. I dont know exactly why we wanted to see it so bad but it was on our to do list and off we went. At first it didnt seem so far from where we were at so we decided to check out the sites on foot. We walked from the Montmartre neighborhood to the cemetary. It was quit a walk but it wasnt too bad. We definitely didnt go through some of the best neighborhoods but we didnt get hassled.
Once in the cemetary we realized that it wasnt going to be easy to find the grave. This place was huge and alittle confusing. It did take us a while before we found it. We also looked for Frederic Chopin's grave, That was all we had time for. By the time we found those two graves it started getting dark. We felt alittle wierd being in the cemetary at night and they were closing anyways so we left. It was an adventure. Then we walked all the way to the Louvre.
