El Campo Santo

10 December 2007

We are visiting San Diego right now, Benjie is with his grandparents, and we’ve got a week to relax. Today we visited Old Town, and among other things, we visited El Camp Santo, the historic cemetery there. I guess that it became quite an expansive cemetery, but the town grew inward, encroaching on it, so they moved the wall of the cemetery inward, without relocating all the graves. They discovered graves under the street and sidewalk that pass next to the city using ground penetrating radar, and have started putting markers where the are. We noticed them as we walked down the sidewalk and took some pictures. I’d post them, but we forgot to bring the cable to pull the pictures off the camera, so it’s going to have to wait until we get home. It was kind of cool to see, though.
