This is Bistek al la Mexicana a common dish found many places. There are several places I get this some better than others but all real decent! Kind of a tomato based sauce with generally pretty tender pieces of beef and a fair amount of it. The rice is pretty generic but the frijoles can be something else. This also includes as many fresh made in front of you tortillas you want and brought to you with a smile. Something like this costs around 50-60 pesos or $3. The squeezed as you watch orange juice is 20 and brings the price up a bit but worth it. Nothing in the States I've ever had compares to this not even close plus it'll cost 7-10 smacks. I don't know what I'm going to eat when I return. It will be an adjustment as I do this so much that is go into Puerto Vallarta on the south side and have me a excellent lunch with "real" Mexican food not the slop I get back there. I do not plan on eating out much at all only at maybe three select places. Pricey yes but worth it because it's so good. I threw away so much money last summer eating way overpriced shitty food. Several times the food got thrown away as well. The whole of Mexico is an eating machine I tell you. I'm gonna miss this.

I feel good and and think the higher temps and humidity contributes to that. It's the same every time. After a month or two you realize and say " Hey I feel pretty damn good!"

Just as important I believe the food made fresh with wholesome fresh ingredients as well contributes to that. Get off the bus in town the food smells everywhere make me hungry just like that.


Bush And The Royal Treatment

Bush Prods Saudi Arabia on Oil Prices
New York Times

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia —
President Bush urged the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries on Tuesday to take into account the toll that high oil prices are having on the American economy, gingerly touching on an issue that has begun to color the last year of his presidency and dominate the presidential election campaign.

Speaking to a group of Saudi entrepreneurs and later in an interview with reporters, Mr. Bush expressed his concern about the economy in some of his starkest language yet, saying that rising oil and gasoline prices are causing hardship for American families.

“It’s affected our families,” Mr. Bush told reporters, adding that he would raise the issue with the Saudi leader, King Abdullah, during a meeting on Tuesday evening at the king’s lush horse farm in the desert outside Riyadh. “Paying more for gasoline hurts some of the American families.”

As Mr. Bush himself acknowledged, it was not clear that his entreaties could have any significant effect on oil prices. He said the demand for oil, especially from expanding markets in China and India, as well as from the United States, was rising faster than supplies.

Saudi Arabia’s oil minister, Ali al-Naimi, appeared to rebuff the president’s appeal, though he did so gently. “We will raise production when the market justifies it,” he said at a press conference after Mr. Bush’s remarks.

And then they both started laughing and proceeded to gorge themselves on fresh monkey brains.

How pathetic can this guy get?
He knows as well as I do that OPEC is going to do what is good for OPEC.
Bush is over there making people pretend that he is still relevant.
No one wants his ass there, especially those unfortunate enough to have to entertain the dangerous idiot and
trying to pretend he gives a rats ass about the average American family is the most insulting thing of all.
Everybody in the whole world is waiting for this guy to exit, stage left and are holding their breath until they see him stagger off into the sunset,one year and five , very long, days from now.
Give it up George, they don't like you either, maybe not for being a murderous ass clown, but for being the incompetent, swaggering spoiled brat that you are that makes rich folks everywhere cringe and hide the liquor.
