Colma, The Town of The Dead

Colma, The Town of The Dead: South of San Francisco, near Daly City, lies the small town of Colma where the dead outnumbers the living by a thousand to one. It’s less than 2 square miles in size, but crammed within it are as many as 17 centuries where rest the bodies of more than 1.5 million souls.

Wyatt Earp is there. So is Elizabeth Short, the Black Dahlia. Colma is a lovely town. You will find my ghost on a bar stool at Molloy's on Mission there. And if you get lucky, check out the old men carvung gravestones by hand. Yes, a few do.
