Lagosian bottle opener

Monday, January 26, 2009
Ok kids, I’m back from Nigeria.  The most everydaytrash-worthy item I came across while on the road in ever-resourceful Africa?  This handy bottle opener pounded out of a piece of Aluminum tubing that once served to line the windows of a nearby building.

Just look at all those leverage-producing surfaces, perfect for industrial use at such establishements as this roadside bar where I passed several lovely hours before my flight home.
