"The grave yards. The town sits..." Cemeteries... Tip by ladyfisher

Cemeteries..., New Orleans: 9 reviews and 21 photos

The grave yards. The town sits below sea level so they can't bury their dead in the ground but they bury them in tombs. They have family tombs. So long as you have been dead for one year plus a day , they will open the tomb gather your ashes and place them in a drawer in the tomb and place the next body on top. The saying goes 'IF YOU LIVE LONG ENOUGH IN N.O. YOU WILL EVENTALY END UP ON TOP'. Don't venture into these graves yards alone ! Go with a tour group they are in HIGH CRIME area's!
