This cemetery, which is a short walk uphill behind the National Museum, contains 163 graves dating back to colonial times. The most striking aspect of a visit to this melancholy place is just how young most people were when they died – if you made it to forty you were of a very ripe old age. Some of the deaths were due to sunstroke, elephants or jungle fever.
