the trick is to keep breathing


ma käisin laupäevahommikuse kodulähedase palverännaku korras highgate'i idasurnuaial isiklikult järele kontrollimas, ega äkki vaim pole lõpuks luuga uuesti üheks saanud. pidin tõdema: kondid olid seal, aga tont, mul on tunne, käib ikka veel mööda euroopat ringi. ja ega siin rohkem midagi öelda olegi. jääb üle vaid mõelda, aga mõeldagi on raske...

"what's the difference between the eastern part and the western part?"
"well, they opened the western part of the cemetery in 1839, but they were SO SUCCESSFUL that they had to purchase another 30 or 40 acres of land which became the eastern part in 1856."
"how much for entrance?"
"that would be three pounds, sir."
"and could you tell me where's karl marx?"
"oh, karl is easy. just follow this main road and keep to the left until you find him. he is VERY HARD TO MISS. it's with douglas adams that you'll be in trouble..."

Njaa, mitte ainult mööda Euroopat ei kollita see tont, vaid Ladina-Ameerikast Ida-Aasiani kõikjal. Tõesti on temast raske mööda panna, nii Highgate'i surnuaial kui ka maailmas.

Kusjuures, samal surnuaial on ka Douglas Adamsi väga tagasihoidlik puhkamispaika märkiv kivimütakas. Palun reportaaži.
