While Alexandra was speaking with cemetery managers I was flipping through the price list. Some figures that stuck:
|A hole in the wall for an urn with ashes||R45-700000 ($1500-2300)|
|Coffin, cheapest||R1300 ($43). Surprisingly cheap. Perhaps I’ve misunderstood something.|
|Digging a grave||Around R10000 ($330).|
|A temporary sign with your name and dates||R100 ($3+)|
|Yearly fee for an urn with ashes||R150-200 ($5-7). Once you are in things get cheap. Also if you neglect to pay you still will not be evicted.|
I was promised a place on Donskoye if I behave. Not a real graveю Only a hole in the wall on the condition that I reduce myself to ashes. In the wall furthers from the entrance. Still, Donskoye is Donskoye. See you there!
