ONE WEIRD THING

Ok, here's a weird thing I learned in Haiti. This is a picture of a cemetery.

A family buys a crypt with a few open "spots" in it. But let's say they haven't had to use it in a while.

So, they rent out the space. For a year. For real.

I asked what happens if someone is late on rate. Frantz said they kick them out. They literally pull the casket out and rent it to someone else who can pay. Sorry, Grandma.

Wild, huh?

  1. yep...that is weird....

    I wish I had a mantle to set urns of ashes on--I might be able to make a pretty penny for that service! :)

    Thank you for sharing Haiti with us; I see Allie is going too! Haiti will be blessed yet again!
