A Walk in the Cemetery

In my opinion taking a walk in cemeteries is a good way to reflect about life. It is also a great way to learn about the history.

When I was visiting my friend in Stavanger, we went out for a walk in the cemetery near her place. No she was not visiting someone that she knows but she only wanted to show me what the tourists are visiting in their community. I have also learned that in Eiganes Gravlund lies soldiers from World War 2.

I also cannot help but admire the grave stones because of the shapes, colors and the engraved words. Some has pictures too.

I also had some questions in mind while we were inside the cemetery. The first is, does the dead appreciate us visiting them?  Lastly, how much does it cost to be buried in that beautiful cemetery?
