vote for pedro!

miss iggy hollers ¡hola! at you from "south of the border!" (otherwise known as SOB)

this kitschy tourist trap/rest stop/roadside attraction in dillon, south carolina seems like a mirage in I-95, because what can a giant mexican bandido named pedro with his giant sombrero be doing here? certainly, miss iggy hasn't crossed the US-mexican border!

"south of the border" really means south of the north carolina border, and is your gateway to south carolina. you won't miss this place because you'll see wacky billboards along the highway starting from 175 miles away luring you to come visit. signs like, "you never sausage a place" and "chili today, hot tamale."

aside from pedro, there's also this yellow sombrero tower that has an elevator that can take you to the observation deck above. miss iggy didn't go up, though.

Miss Iggy.
I'm glad you didn't climb the tower.

Vote for Pedro :)
