A tradition as old as dirt

I had the pleasure of attending the Iowa wedding of two good Peace Corps friends this weekend. It was a great time all around, enhanced by a visit to the Iowa State Fair. The top three highlights of the fair were:

THE BUTTER COW: A life-sized cow carved entirely out of butter
THE BIG BULL: The super bull of the fair, weighing in at over 3000 lbs. It was a big as a rhinocerous!
FRIED TWINKIE ON A STICK: Exactly what it sounds like. Not so tasty, but worth it for the bragging rights.

A healthy dose of Americana before heading off to Angola!
