A few days ago everyone in town was very excited and curious when a helicopter suddenly appeared and swooped down towards the cemetary. It then hovered alarmingly close to the crosses and angels and let down a cable onto which big bulky 'somethings' were attatched and away it flew up the mountain where it deposited the load and returned for more.
Of course Carlo had already phoned me to tell me that the helicopter was helping shift heavy rocks that were too heavy to be carried by man. Helicopters often are used here for transporting heavy goods to difficult to get to places, water-tanks, building materials etc.
However, I had great fun that afternoon down on the pier because of course everyone wanted to know what was happening and came to ask me. My favourite answer was that they were moving the whole cemetary bit by bit to another location...the look of horror on peoples faces was priceless.
