One More

 One more tombstone from Pere LaChaise Cemetery that is. Although if you haven’t been to this famous cemetery in Paris, it is worth a visit. They now have a sign when you enter that you can download (upload)? a map in English so that you can navigate easily, or you can arrange a tour.

I guess it is obvious why this one caught my eye. Oh my! All I could find out online is that it is the grave of Fernand Arbelot an actor, musician who died in 1942 and he wanted to be able to forever gaze into the face of his wife…Seems he got his wish.


  1. I don't recall seeing that tomb on my visit - it is certainly unusual. There is another very interesting cemetry in Paris (Sainte-Geneviève-des-bois) where many Russians are buried including Rudolf Nureyev - whose tomb is absolutely extraordinary. It is covered in an exotic mosaic resembling one of the oriental kilim rugs that Nureyev loved. The colours in it are exquisite and it is a truly fascinating work of art to see.

  2. Dearest Janey,
    That is a very odd one. He can't even stare her down...!
