During my nine day stay in Paris, I visited the Père Lachaise Cemetery which opened in 1804. It’s Paris’ largest cemetery and with more than 3.5 million visitors annually, it’s the most visited necropolis in the world.
I found Jim Morrison’s and Oscar Wilde’s graves. I mainly wanted to capture some of the peace and beauty there. Give yourself at least a couple of hours to explore.
Once I left, I passed this restaurant named L’ami Justin, which means Justin, the friend. My deceased son’s name is Justin.
I stopped for a delicious cappuccino.
p.s. In case you’ve just began reading…I planned an 11 week, 5 European country, 21 accommodations solo trip from April – June of 2022. Photos were taken with my LG Velvet Android phone.
Cemeteries are intriguing places, and I wish people would see them for what they really are: places of rest; instead of wicked or ghoulish. I learned that Jim Morrison was buried there when I read a biography of him in 1983. That, in and of itself, is a curious tale!

I agree. I watched a documentary recently about the Doors, it was interesting.
