in these parts

The metallic emblem on the grill of 18-wheeler spells out SCANIA (Skåne in English) in thick, block letters. I just barely get a glimpse of the truck sitting parked and abandoned on the side of the onion field across from the gas station as our pack pedaled by. But the glimpse is long enough. Proudly displayed in a somewhat visibility-impairing location on the windshield is the one, the only, the Confederate Flag.

International redneck solidarity? I think maybe so.

Good Lawd, the marriage of two worlds ain’t never been so perfect.
