Video: Characters and places

People can make a place. When Times staff writer Christopher Reynolds found these characters with his video camera in 2010, one sang the praises of Baja's surf breaks and stray dogs, one recalled his 7,000 trips down a Hawaiian volcano and one compared himself to "Rain Man" on the way to the southern tip of Africa. And let's not forget the San Francisco tour guide who saw 400 Grateful Dead shows yet remembers enough to tell the tale.
