Two photos this week, of the necropolises (necropolii?) at Revenga and Cuyacabras, Spain.
P was disappointed that they’re only 1,000 years old, which speaks to the differing expectations of a Spaniard and a Canadian (my nation of birth is officially just over a tenth that old).
It only occurred to me afterward that we should have laid Seve down beside them for scale, since about half were smaller than he was at the time, not even six months old.
Beyond the obvious “beyond this world” connotation, second image shows, in the distance, a peak still snow-capped even in April. I want to say that it’s Tres Provincias — La Rioja, and Soria and Burgos in Castilla y León — but I trust neither my memory nor my sense of geography. Besides, what locals call key features of the mountain range often differs considerably from what you’ll find on a map, Google or otherwise.
