Montparnasse Cemetary

Last sunday Paris was 12 degrees and sunny.  I had lunch on a park bench and took a long walk through Montparnasse cemetery.  Located in the shadow of Tour Montparnasse not far from the southern tip of Jardin du Luxembourg, this cemetery is wrongfully overlooked by tourists (Père-Lachaise gets all the attention).  Many french artists and intellectuals are buried here including Jean-Paul Sartre and Simone de Beauvais as well as the most beloved Serge Gainsbourg.
