The Chairfather: Père Lachaise Part I
Hey, are you up for a quick and spooky detour? Then check out the tall dome on the right, and stand before its glass front.
This is known as the "Grave of Noailles" because the writer Anna de Noailles is buried here. She’s joined by generations of her ancestors, who are from, are you ready for this? Transylvania! Home of Dracula. The royal eagle above your head carries a stake and a cross, which everyone knows are the only means to kill a vampire.
The glass allows you to see inside, where there are many frescoes painted on the walls.
Approach it. I’d like to draw your attention to one in particular.
You can only see it by holding your left ear to the leftmost black bar and looking high up into the crypt. You may need to hold up your right hand to block out the glare. Are you in position? Listen closely…
(2 second pause)
Blouaaaahahaha! Scared ya, huh?
OK, enough made up nonsense. Let’s continue on Revolution road, and see if reality surpasses fiction.
Turn your attention to the left side of the path. You’ll see two tombs with Glandaz on the top, and a tall tree leaning in-between.
