According to some death is the equalizer between the rich and the poor but i dont think so. I visited La Loma Cemetery and Chinese Cemetry yesterday and i just cant help but see the starking difference between the graves, yes there are nice moseleums at La Loma cemetery too but the oppulence of the tombs and moseleums at Chinese Cemetery are in a different level.
Anyways, this is what apartment tombs look like, photo taken at La Loma cemetery, a cheaper option for the poor and the city's answer to the ever increasing need for more space in the cemtery. i think this type of tombs are on lease for 5 years and you have to renew your contract with the city government so that the remains of your loved ones will stay there undisturbed, otherwise they will be exhumated and thrown i dont know where. will the vertical type or the regular tomb be replaced by these apartment type of tombs in the near future?
