Relatives visit the grave of their loved ones at a cemetery in Manila on October 31, 2012. Millions of Filipinos will flock to cemeteries on November 1 and 2 around the country in a traditional commemoration of remembering their loved ones by offering flowers, candles and prayers.

Cemetery at the abandoned village of Old Chevak. The dead cannot be buried. Their coffins would be crushed, and the bones and wood fragments brought to the surface, by the churning compaction of the seasonally freezing ground. - LINK
