Awkwardly-Named Local Business of the Month

"The Taliban" scrap yard, San Miguel.

"We pick up from your home!" Which is a nice touch.

This reminds me of the tail end of a long hike in the desert in Baja. My pal and I are coming out of the scrub and we start seeing signs of civilization -- dessicated goat turds, dessicated goat bodies in the trees, the odd 1940s-vintage blue glass electric line insulator -- and then these (incongruously well-hydrated) pit bulls come running up to us all happy to see us. A dessicated farmer eventually follows, and tells us that the dogs' names are Paco and Osama bin Laden. "Saddam Hussein is in the house," he tells us.
