Stairway to Heaven?
This one is a little bizarre and requires an explanation. During a recent trip to an ancient site in Turkmenistan, we passed several graves with ladders propped up against them.

Last weekend, while walking at Devil's Peak near Lei Yue Mun I came across a small garden near the one of the disused defence installations there. In it was what looked a lot like a makeshift grave ... with a ladder.
