Military cemeteries

I've updated the image of the Cemetery. The Plone CSS templates are too complicated for me, so I've put just a header image. Two different headers, really, for the Basque and English versions. Those cemeteries are not English, really. They are military burial grounds that we visited last summer in Normandy. The one in the Basque side is the American cemetery of Normandy, in Omaha Beach, and this one at the English side is the nearby German cemetery of La Combe, an image that a co-worker, photographer and designer Zaloa Etxaniz adapted for the header. 

The title line of this blog refers to the English Cemetery of Donostia, the city in which I live. Donostia is a bilingual city, and has this English spot on it, a nice little historic cemetery for some forgotten war heroes of the 18th century. When my blog launched, this was a trilingual experiment, so I thought the English Cemetery was a fitting metaphore for it. Then El Cementerio de los Ingleses, the Spanish version, migrated to another site, the Mapamovil.



The original blog was orange, it had an image with the map location of the English Cemetery. Then in 2006 I changed to a black and white design, with some misterious girls in the header: some friends told me that header made me look like a pervert. Who cares? Anyway, now I finally show cemeteries.

The new headers look very nice, Luistxo. Indeed, much more fitting than your previous mysterious and somewhat pervy header. ;-)
