“No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may.
We ourselves must walk the path.”
La Recoleta cemetary – Buenos Aires, Argentina
Watch one of the most beautiful graveyards located in the heart of Argentina´s capital Buenos Aires with atmospheric background music featured by Victoria Tolstoy. The monuments of this cemetery are unique and one of a kind – a must to visit this cemetery where Eva Peron is buried. Among heroes, explorers, philosophers, soldiers, musicians and politicians there are graves which are less popular, but bear the greatest stories – e.g. David Alleno, who was an Italian immigrant and dreamed of being buried in the prestigious cemetery where he worked as a caretaker from 1881 to 1910. He saved enough money to buy a space and built his own tomb. He even traveled back to his homecountry to find an artist who could carve his own figure in marble, complete with keys, broom & watering can. There´s a mystery which says that after the tomb was finished David took his own life inside his grave, but many reputable sources say he died years after the tomb was constructed.
Take me to church – performed by Ellie Goulding
Take me to church
I’ll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
I’ll tell you my sins so you can sharpen your knife
Offer me my deathless death
Good God, let me give you my life
No Masters or Kings when the Ritual begins
There is no sweeter innocence than our gentle sin
In the madness and soil of that sad earthly scene
Only then I am Human
Only then I am Clean
Amen. Amen. Amen. Amen.

Life is about creating yourself.”

“All pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure –
these things just fall away in the face of death,
leaving only what is truly important.”
– Steve Jobs.
