Sleeping with the Fishes

The Chacarita Cemetery is essentially a small town (9 x 9 city blocks or so?) whose spiderwebbing streets are lined with grandiose mausoleums ranging from traditional neoclassical style to slick funeral-parloresque art deco to swirly art nouveau. I killed about an hour there before getting completely creeped out and heading back the land of the living, although I had to think– why get buried when you could spend eternity in one of these?
