    ... tract that was originally planned as an extension to the extant area cemetery but was commandeered by local people desperate for somewhere to live.

    As a consequence bodies are now interred several kilometres away. Following the local practice, the dead are placed in concrete, rectangular boxes above ground. Where family members are interred together this is achieved by adding more layers of such boxes on top of the existing ones. One particularly sad ...

    ... and over again on a rock; eventually it shatters and flies up into the air, and in slow motion metamorphoses into a spaceship in the year 2001.
