This is something that is so funny to me? Really? How many 24hour funeral homes does one city need? Resende has as many funeral homes as churches. There is a funeral home on every corner there seems.
Funerals are not big business or expensive things like they are in North America. Mind you there some pretty elaborate tombs. But the funeral home and casket is very inexpensive and less decorative than we are used to. They are usually very small shops…so small that caskets are displayed upright for space.
If I could speak a little more Portuguese I might stop by one of these funeral places and see how it works!
