Today's post is going up late. I thought I got over jet lag quickly but apparently not so: I literally fell asleep sitting up last evening while preparing it. Then I was awake half the night. The price of long distance travel.
These photos are from the old town of Menton. Most places reserve hilltops with sweeping views for expensive homes and hotels. Menton put the cemetery there. The graves include lots of foreigners, people with tuberculosis who thought the ideal climate would help (it didn't). The inventor of rugby. William Ellis, lies there. It looks like the high rent district of the afterlife.
