Paarl Cemetery

This cemetery is next to a church in Paarl, South Africa.  There are a variety of tomb styles, similar to those in the New Orleans cemeteries.  Obelisks, the tall, tapering stones, seemed to be very prevalent in this cemetery.

A coping grave.

It was common to see these slave bells on the wine farms in the area.  They were used under apartheid to call the workers.  This one was located outside the cemetery in Paarl.
