A Mexican Newspaper Article

We will be returning to High Prairie in a few days if we can get in to our place! February was a good month for us to be gone!

While here in La Paz we sometimes pick up a free newspaper called the Gringo Gazette which is mostly about the Los Cabos area. The writers for the publication sort of tell it like it is and sometimes they have a unique manner of writing. Like the following, from a recent issue:

“The San Jose city dump at Palo Escopeta, on the road to the East Cape, will also be improved. How do you improve a dump? Is that anything like putting lipstick on a pig? Or, put a different way, you can roll a dog turd in powdered sugar, but that don’t make it a donut.”
