Hillside Memorial

05 January 2008

This hillside cemetery has more history than just the dead who are buried here...

The site is Carib's Leap (or Leaper's Hill).
Directly behind me is a dramatic cliff - a cliff where Grenada's last remaining Carib Indians hurled themselves in 1651, preferring suicide over domination by the French.

I remember seeing this. Quite a story. Great image! Good choice of monochrome. The lush colors wouldn't give the same feeling, would they?
