Hanging out in Highgate…

…cemetery with Karl Marx and a several other dead people.

Highgate Cemetery’s famous for being the resting place for several major (Mr Marx) and tens of minor (Thomas Sayers?) celebrities from London’s past. If that’s not enough of a reason to visit, it’s also a great place to see expressions of individuality. Not so much from the people buried there, but more from the people who buried them. After all, they’re the ones who choose how you’re remembered.
