So many stories to tell, so many moonless nights deep in the forest with a shovel and mud on my boots. An integral part of this business is discretion.

It seems they prefer to die in the Suisse Romand. The cemeteries of Corsier-sur-Vevey and Lausanne get a visit from me soon.
Care to borrow a shovel and boots?

Thanks, I`m equipped. I might need an assistant if you`re short of work though. Carrying the heavy stuff, etc...

Hermann Hesse, German author: (d 1962) Montagnola
Actually, Hesse is buried in Gentillino (Sant'Abbondio cemetery), not in Montagnola (the Hesse museum is in Montagnola).

This I know for a fact, as his grave as 8m from that of my wife's parents, opposite side of the path.

(and every time we go there are tourists taking pictures of Hesse's grave).

Tom
