"Over on us but it turns out it is all real so this story of Skeleton Island is that the nineteen forties a forest ranger stumbled across this lake high in the Himalayan mountains and it was a little frozen lake that was filled with skeletons it was filled with skulls and bones and I thought maybe this had to do with World War Two and it turns out that the bones had been there for an incredibly long time they've been there for twelve hundred years but no one could be you're out quite what had killed the people in Skeleton Lake and it wasn't until the mid two thousand two thousand five that team went out there they examined the skeleton and the forensic evidence was very odd all of these bones the skeleton that similar injuries which is blunt force trauma the heads and shoulders but nothing that matched with what would have been an attack or a fight that they were just around like pummeled by golf balls exactly and it turns out that there is a folk song in the area that is the story of trespassers from another land and these people were actually travelers they were not local who were struck down by an angry goddess who reigned hailstones hard as iron from the sky and that is the that is the current consensus that the bones in Skeleton Lake were all travellers killed in a freak hailstorm it's just it's kind of one of these things that is hard to even wrap your mind around there it is and they're still up there and you can organize a hike up to the site that's amazing there's also an island in a cemetery in Bali Trenin cemetery that's famous tons of skulls on an island what's that all about again a another example of cultural differences around death but at trending cemetery this small village when a relative dies there can across a a lake on auto ferry ride and they're brought to this place where their bodies are essentially just laid on the ground in little thatched huts little sort of Straw thatched huts and overtime nature does its work and all that's left are the bones of your relatives and then and then these bones are taken up in there act at the base of this Banyan tree kind of reffing injury and you'd think that this might be sort of a gross place because they're our body he's kind of on the ground but in fact the tree itself puts out this like strong spicy sort of sent masks whatever other kind of bad smells would be there in the places it's quite peaceful and meditative and people come and spend time with the relatives there I've got the ashes of my mother in my living room on the shelf and at first I didn't know uncomfortable with that but I am in it's an exercise for us in our culture to not be afraid of death and realize it's part of life just like people in Bali would have this memorial to their loved ones who still are with them You know one of the most interesting sites in Europe is Madame Toussaud's wax salary and today it's a very commercial venture with the Michael Jackson and Barack Obama and Vladimir Putin but originally started out quite historic and it started out as quick a bloody tradition gives them the backstory of Madame Toussaud's Wax Gallery yeah I find this fast because these sort of madam too so wax museums are so touristy and they feel like such tourist traps but her story great Halloween Story and she's in the seventeen sixty s and she grew up with the anatomist stepfather who taught her about bodies anatomical examination and and she took this and and translated at a particularly bloody time in French history which is basically she was there during the French Revolution and supposedly would even wait at the base of the Guillotine for recently beheaded heads to roll down so she could do ladies of them in cast a death masks and then go and turn around and create a wax model of that figure and She had a real sense and a real flair for presentation and it's in one way it's something that connects her original work with these kinds of tourist traps today which is that after doing this work in France she left to kind of make her fortune she went to England and opened up a wax museum that was sort of half horror show half kind of criminals she made wax models of Birkin hair who are famous resurrection.

"Later in the hour a clergywoman from Iowa tells us what she learned about the death rituals and beliefs of people she traveled around the world the meat and next one of the founders of Atlas Obscure joins us to consider some rather macabre places you can visit it's travel with Rick Steves the world is full of fascinating and mysterious places and sometimes they might even feel a bit creepy the folks at Atlas Obscure have made it their mission to highlight the numerous noteworthy places their readers contribute to their website co founder Dylan throws is with us right now to recommend catacombs crypts end cemeteries that are worth of if you dare tell us about place you've visited that gave you goosebumps we're at eight seven seven three three three seven four to five dylan how're you doing I'm ready I'm ready right let's grab the grim reaper as our co Guidon hop on a broomstick for some transportation and I'd like you to be my ghoulish travel agent set me up here the trip of a lifetime where's a place that you wanNA stop I well I think a good starting point would be in check Ya at the said let's also if you're going to see one also a structure filled with bones this is the one to go to it is a church in which bones have been arranged in elaborate complex displays including a enormous bone chandelier God said to have one bone from every part of the human body plus many more I that's an excellent place to begin you can't get much more elaborate bone architecture then said let's now that's in the town of couldn't Ahora if I remember correctly that's correct absolutely and you call it check yet which is the new term for the Czech Republic I've been trying to make this I don't know but it's just a short train ride away from Prague and if you want bones I agree there's oh better collection of human bones because it's done with a little artistic flair isn't it I mean wonderful wonderful challenge if you're the person making the chandeliers to take every bone the human body decorated in a way that where it all kind of comes together in a nice sort of beautiful fixture hanging from the ceiling that's right take me when we're thinking of bone and to Paris deep under the streets after they decided cemeteries are a waste of space and they're not very hygienic let's under the cemetery's free up that land on the churches and what are you GonNa do with six million skeletons while you're going to arrange them in normal tunnels run underneath much of Paris Parisians catacombs are certainly the most famous catacombs in the world and the little section open to the public is a wonderful taste of what's down there and it is also got some artistic arrangements you have different arrangements of skulls set into enormous walls of femurs is really but one of the things I love that captures my imagination about the Persian catacombs is that they are enormous and the part that's open to the public is actually very mall and there's a whole other part that is sort of the domain of Cata files of groups in Paris that are obsessed with exploring mapping charting the illicit parts of the catacombs and even throwing enormous events in there there have been some famous stories about there being an entire underground movie theater that when the police discovered the chairs and that there had been something going on it was quietly disassembled was all gone within a couple of days so I love that idea this entire kind of subculture there's actually tours of underground Paris that take advantage of the fact that it's honeycombed with passages there's a lot of Passages for the sewer they stretch out all the sewers and Paris it would go all the way to Istanbul there's of course a lot of tunnels from the Metro and the underground and in the case of the catacombs of Paris this I understand was an old plaster of Paris Corey we've all heard of plaster of Paris while they had to quarry that and I was walking around Paris I remember years ago and I had white third on my feet on my shoes and somebody says oh you've been in the catacombs they could just tell that I'd been walking through that plaster Paris so the secret societies doing their things down there and as you mentioned now it's the part that's open to the public anyways is just quite an interesting mystic displays you get your femurs over there and you got your skulls over here and any tourist can visit the catacombs of Paris and I should say if we're doing a spooky tour of Paris of which there is plenty of of options you should probably make us stop in parallel chase one of the greatest cemeteries in the entire world where there are all kinds of incredible things to visit but I know there are some wonderful vampire tours of perilous chance where you can be taken around by vampire historian who wants to give you the real story of of Parisian Vampires Oh my goodness I love cemeteries have all the cemeteries in Europe this is the most interesting from an art and history point of view from music point of view you got great posers from Chopin to Jim Morrison of the doors they're spurs musicians go lots of history and if you're interested in vampires you can be there for the right that tour travel with Rick Steves we're talking with Dylan Thrace and he's written atlas obscure that less obscure is a chance to uncover the world's most fascinating sites are the numbers eight seven seven three three three seven four to five and Scott is on the line from Chicago's got thanks for your call own thing I think the putsch enrollments the most neck hair-raising place I've ever visited I would definitely fit that into my next trip to Rome. can you describe it for us Scott tell us what it's like I love this idea that the hair on your neck would be raising oh take into it divided up into like looms in each room is decorated with owns and different configurations and it's so creepy I mean it's the only place we I still like member the smell of dirt in there you know one of my first trips to Europe yeah no it's just made me kind of like seek out these kind of places later on like the catacombs of Paris well you're right this is one of the ultimate bone experience in Europe Scott it's the Capuchin crypt in Rome it's just a underneath a church and it's the Capuchin monks have this interesting habit of putting their dead brothers done the Krypton when all the flowers right away they take the bones and they decorate with them and now one hundred years later they opened up for visitors and I know the smell you're talking about there it's just that fertile dirt history musty nece and I've got a sort of a chill in my spine right now thinking about that because there's always a what seems not very friendly monk at the far end of the corridor looking at every tourist because you're not supposed to take photographs and every tourist is trying to get a photograph of all those skulls hanging from the walls and so on I think that what's really folded me is the message because as you leave you realize either not just making some stunt to charge for tourists there's a spiritual message here and there reminding all the visitors what we are today you will be tomorrow you know and it's just reminded us that half your vacation that we're all mortal creature the Capuchin crypt in Rome is small as you said but the one in Palermo in Sicily is much bigger dylan do you have any thoughts on the Capuchin crypt of Italy if you want sort of spooky religious sites Italy really is going to be your best bang for your buck and the one in Palermo it's interesting because it's it's S. of a sort of a strict ossuary where it's bone arrangements and it's a bit more of a a mummy fashion show because the bones are still intact attention there and they're even dressed people decide what they want to wear for eternity and they're categorized where the policemen are over here and the brothers are over here and women are over here the children over here is a unique experience isn't it it is actually I think the point you made rick about this momentum Amora Rabin reminded of one's mortality is is really worth keeping in mind when you go to places like this because again America's kind of the on one out here most of the rest of the world has the bones of their ancestors and clean them you know family day it's it is America who is sort of so uncomfortable with this whole thing so it's always good it's wonderful spooky experiences and then it's good to sort of take a step back and say right what was the.

"That tomb then is free to be uprooted and the bones go into an awesome areas or which is a big hole filled with bones of forgotten loved it's exactly the same with regular let you make room for the an opera and all of a sudden they find her completely passed out they tested to see if she was breathing they didn't feel the breath they thought she had passed away it's a tragic story in and of itself so they buried her and then the next day someone went into go in and check on her and actually they found that the top of the casket lid had and moved to the side and what they think is she hadn't Cadillac attack where she's actually basically in a coma and her breathing was so low and but she was actually sorry to live she was trapped inside her coffin and she struggled down there she struggled they say that they're scratch marks on on the underneath side of her coffin it's a lot of cultures you let the corpse lay a couple of days just because they're not sure if you're not really sure worked into the traditional Italian kind of the wake also a Perron has as a very fortified a controversial she passed away in nineteen fifty two she had uterine cancer and her last public act was basically seeing her husband one peron reelected and she passed away right after the that and they embalmed her body and they decided to put it on public display and then when their government was ousted in nineteen fifty-five her body is such a big political symbol that the military dictatorship decided they wanted to hide it so they went in and stole her body it went on various trips everywhere but it ended up in Milan actually in a cemetery in Milan under a false name so several decades later when Perron comes back to power one of the ways to sort of make amends return the body of Eva and so they actually wanted was living with his third wife Isabel and they were in Franco's Spain this is in the seventies and much of a havoc and eventually they do bring her back but then when they bring her back because she's been stolen and moved around and mistreated in her death to they points areas most historic cemeteries so many I guess the most famous one would be about one of the caretakers of Recoleta cemetery decided to stay there actually he worked life caring for these mausoleums and he eventually could purchase one himself and they say they say that he was so thrilled when it finally got completed that he committed suicide to just sort of be there forever it's it was like his lifelong dream was to remain in the cemetery so he was a grave digger or any decided to make this as permanent home and to this day you can hear the keys of some people say you could hear the keys that he wore on his belt to open all of those teams that he was taking care of Robert Thank you for I was GonNa say bringing the Recoleta cemetery to life but no putting to death.

"On the intersection between this world and the next the folks had atlas really really is GonNa be you're the best bang for your Buck and the clergywoman tells us how her travels have shown her the ways different societies confront mortality and honored ready we leave behind it's not just dust when we're done with it and that's a lot of the rituals of mourning of death have to do with treating the body with the back we're traveling with the NUTSO repairing our head on travel with Rick Steves just in time for Halloween also stay in the day of the dead we're about to learn how people in different parts of the world honor the end of life and Episcopal Deacon from Iowa US what she's discovered in her travels with the grim reaper and we'll hear about some of the unusual places in the Atlas Obscure Cabinet of curiosities sites that run the gamut from sacred to creepy it's all just ahead on today's travel with Rick Steves where at eight seven seven three three three seven four to five cemetery this can be some of the most interesting moving and artistic sites in a city you can learn a lot about a society by visiting it's leading graveyards and they welcomed tourists Robert Wright is a guide who's lived in guided in Buenos Aires for many years and he considers that city's historic cemetery the most important site in town Robert joins us now to talk about why he loves digging curious visitors to Buenos Aires Coletta Cemetery Robert Thanks for joining us thank you cemeteries are fascinating and a lot of people don't realize but they really give a fun insight we'll get to Buenos Aires in a minute let's talk cemeteries in general as you've traveled what are some tips for travelers to recognize the importance of cemeteries in their sightseeing everyone makes a big deal about going to churches yeah and a lot of times that's where baptisms take place but then you forget that there's the end of the road as well and the way that people build their mausoleums their family tombs that's how they want to be remembered so it's a great insight to a family's sense of their historical preservation also they're great repositories of art and architecture if you love sure what better place to go it's an outdoor museum and every cemetery is free exactly you could book for one of the maps the tricia where the famous people learn it always kind of gives me a little bit better sense of the history of a place as well that I'm visiting because that way I can maybe learn about some of the important players in history that you don't really get access to you in an art museum we have a very ethnocentric look at who matters in the way we learned history but if you go to a cemetery you can see by the nature of the thousands of that tomb who were the biggest unity I just always go to Europe I'm thinking everywhere in Europe every great city every single said now you have an experience in bonuses aries you lived in Buenos Aires and what is so unique about the Recoleta cemetery in the big city in Argentina I lived in Argentina for fourteen years rick and I I still remember to this day the very first time I stepped foot in that cemetery because it's like a little miniature city within a city it has AH variety of tombs and mausoleums but it's like you're taking a walk through a just four city blocks the covers all of Argentina history you've got the founders the city you've got all the first presidents that are there every single moment in history even like the very controversial period of the Perron Era Because Eva Peron is very there's I would love to learn about that but I wouldn't know how if I went to that cemetery would there be a a guided tour available or there's actually maps that you can buy at the entrance gate eight if you want and there are also a guided tours available usually there are people there that you can do a tour with an any language okay so in English is tourists who are areas you could do that let's the cemetery take me on a walk Robert what am I gonNa see is it a cer- cuff agai is little houses that have you know families in them were who am I going to bump into Pete the pitcher for us I think when you first gonNA walk through a very large grand entrance gate and it sort of sets the tone for the the tire experience because you know you're walking into somewhere very important with through that large gate and then all of a sudden the whole cemetery opens up before you and you have neat little rows uh-huh of not usually tombstones because the tombstones were from a previous era but once it became really popular to be buried in Recoleta cemetery they started building larger and larger family mausoleums okay so instead of walking in thinking you refine grasp plots or crosses or tombstones there are Zillah few that are leftover tucked in between little corners but there are mainly large mausoleums ups pitcher and many of us travelers have been to the Perlis says cemetery in Paris and you walk through this grand entry and it's got a street plan sure you know there's the main street there's neighborhood you have to know how to find your loved one as you do and and then you've got some people that just have a little slab and there's and there's a lot of these stone homes buildings mausoleums Muslims this is so exciting to have this extra dimension of sighting in our travels this is travel with Rick Steves we're talking with Robert Wright and Robert A tour guide who for years has lived in guided in Buenos Aires in Argentina our number eight seven seven three three three seven four to five and Ed's calling in from Vancouver in Washington ed thanks for your call Hi Rick yeah we were just there on a family trip last month and we actually went back twice to the cemetery it was just so interesting with all the lines say these little buildings where you could look in and you can see well you can see you know the wealth of the families you can see you know what was important to them and how they wanted to be remembered my question had to do more about you know how do they decide how these these little buildings are built and how many it's not just one person this is really a family and they're almost look like you could look into some of them and you almost see little bunk beds in there every coffin yeah little level it actually has to do with space requirements okay so if the cemetery's four city blocks it's built into the Urban Africa the city because initially cemeteries were located far from residential areas but as the city grows the cemetery was actually surrounded by the city so the Harry has no space to expand so basically you're you have to reuse whatever space you have inside you'll build a very fancy mausoleum but you'll have undergone around storage and the ideas that by the time great GRANDPA is in there you're gonNA have room for other people coming along and future generations because by the time his great grandson is time to pass away there's not a whole lot left a great grandpa he's just basically ashes and so he's like then ways less remembered and he takes up less space so you can move him into a different container and I know this sounds gruesome but it's it is what it is and then you move them into a different container and then there's room for other family members so in that way you can continue to use these mausoleums overtime Robert I've been in cemeteries where the Standing is we have limited space here in our little ledge of land next to the lake or whatever and it's been centuries and your loved one gets a spot as long as his end sisters or her ancestors want to pay essentially the rent for that and there's nobody around anymore that cares anymore they don't pay the upkeep they don't pay that rent right and hulu dead who have loved ones who can pay the bill these mausoleum stay in the same family as long as they continue to pay the maintenance fee and there are caretakers of the cemetery that clean and
