Love graveyards

Hey Ken, loved the episode. I also like walking around on grave yards, they combine the best in of three key factors I think: 1) Silence. There are a lot of loud places these days but a graveyard is almost everywhere a place of serenity. 2) Art. I don't know how things are over there but here a lot of graves are real works of art. 3) History. Even the grave yard of a small little town tells dozens of stories.

I found this quite interesting, I've never even thought about such requirements; thank you.
