A Walk in the Cemetery

... a cemetery looking at the stones. This cemetery was interesting because it had many ground crypts. Coming from Canada (or at least where I live), there aren't many ground crypts so I found this cemetery to be especially interesting.

Both plane rides are uneventful until we near our destination. Once we dip ...

During my time here I plan on looking further into the economical, political, and social situations within the country. Within these three categories, I hope to spend some time researching things like the unemployment rate and quality of living in order to gain a better understanding of how these factors affect peoples lives in this country.
