Tree graves are a sad reminder of child mortality
On the way back from Tampangallo, one passes Kambira, a village that is known for its baby graves. For the very small – apparently, those who have no teeth yet qualify -, no caves are being hewn out of the rock, but an opening is made in a large tree, where the tiny body is then buried. A good tree can contain several of such graves, and Kambira has such a tree – by now a touristic attraction, of course. It is also a stark reminder of child mortality, clearly not yet under control here.
