Coffin Road

Friday, September 3rd, 2010

On our way to the clinic, we have to drive on “Coffin Road” where there are many, many coffin makers, and a few furniture makers.  Business of like nature seem to cluster together.  I understand $40 will get you this basic model.

The plates of ribbon loops hanging on the right are what they use for flowers at funerals.  We have passed a cemetery and it appears that you buy the plot and invite your friends to help you come dig.  We have seen several groups of all women circled around a grave, which means it was an infant,miscarriage, or abortion.  Families here have a lot of kids so they can have “spares.”
