This is the grave of the teacher and spiritist
Allan Kardec. While I was here, someone
told me that his grave has more flowers than
any other in Père Lachaise. That's because folks
come here to ask for something, and reach up to
rub his shoulder to help their wish along.
Then if they get what they wanted, they come
back and leave flowers to say "Merci."
(By the way, I tried it and it worked—so now I"ll
have to come back here with my offering.)
