The two-way street past the cemetery is switched one day of the year, on the morning of All Saints' Day, today, to a one-way street. The buses are packed. The average man is seventy years old and five and a half feet tall. The average woman is shorter and older. With big bags of flowers, with flowerpots and candles, with feet stuck into best shoes, with crutches and canes, they negotiate the bus steps. All get off at the same stop.
