Jim Morrison's grave; the wall at which some of the holdouts of the Paris Commune were executed May 28, 1871; and Marcel Proust's gravesite. Some elderly woman came up to me, speaking in Italian, I think. All I could get out of what she said was JEEM Morrison, interspersed with other things. I thought she was looking for his resting place, and pointed in the general direction. She shook her head, walking off saying JEEM Morrison. Later I acted as an ad hoc tour guide, directing some guys from Strasbourg, France to the spot -- and it was the first time I had visited Père Lachaise. I also showed up with the right timing to witness a coffin unloaded from a hearse, and marched up the hill by pallbearers to the decedent's final sleep, just like in the movies. I did not take a picture, due to
not getting my camera ready fast enough respect for the survivors.
