Sicily Mummies

mood: tired
song: 88 (lm.c)

Woke up at 9.30am... *thanks to mum*
get ready then we headed straight to Sunshine Square =.=
*sigh* it seems that my mum found a new victim...
went back home around noon.. Damn tiring...

was so bored then i on the TV and watch National Geographic..
Hmmm.. Today's program seems to be very interesting... Its about Sicily Mummies..

Capuchins' Catacombs which is located in Palermo, Italy is where there are thousands of corpses lined on the wall like statues.. Back in the 1599, the local priests mummified a holy monk for all to see.. this is for the reason to pray him after death...
Then, in time the locals wanted their relatives remembered in this same way.. Soon there were hundred of corpses. Children are sometimes posed.. Rosalia Lombardo was one of the last corpses to make it to the catacombs before the local authorities discontinue the practice. Rosalia died about 1920 and is nicknamed the "Sleeping Beauty"..
