It Really Is the Wild West

I bought a phone with a camera so that I could snap a picture whenever I saw something interesting; goodness knows I see enough odd things in the course of a regular old day here in Turkey. But I never imagined the first thing I'd capture was this (and please brace yourselves, it isn't pretty):

Just an ordinary dumpster, right? Perhaps a little messier than what you're used to seeing, but still pretty normal, right? Look closer:

I considered not posting this, but then I thought that would be somehow breaking an code of journalistic honesty. Perhaps I take myself too seriously. But I did feel like I'd be lying to you if I didn't report this latest incident.

I think I may have jinxed myself with yesterday's post about lawlessness. It seems people can dispose of their livestock carcasses (I think it's a sheep? a long-nosed calf?) anywhere they want.

  1. When I walked by this I was mid-conversation with Kyla and I caught it out of the corner of my eye. Talk about a fright! I definitely jumped and there might have been a shriek. I was going to go back to take a picture to put on my blog, but I thought it was too gruesome. I'll link to yours!
