Old Calton Burial Ground, Edinburgh, Scotland

I was told I should visit more European cemeteries, so when I had a chance two weeks ago in Edinburgh, I took it.

The mausolea in Edinburgh are fascinating; they do not have roofs like in America, and the graves then are on the ground inside. Take, for example, the famous philosopher David Hume’s mausoleum below.

I found this monument to Scots who fought and died in the American Civil War fascinating, and unique.

    There is a statue of Lincoln standing in the middle of a cemetery in Edinburgh? How delightfully strange.
