Two cemeteries

Inspired by fellow blogger Sethsnap who asked if cemeteries were “cool or creepy”.

I found two examples of contrasting cemeteries which both showcase the argument for “cool” in their own way. To be fair the Venetian section shown is for expats and hinted at severe neglect. Other parts of the Cemetery Island were extremely well-maintained and visited by locals and curious travellers. The Lauterbrunnen cemetery reflects the Swiss personality for orderliness and pride. The high rainfall keeps the greenery, plants and  flowers fresh and postcard-like.
