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.

William the Bloody and Chris Masshews

Tom Tomorrow knocks these guys flat on their asses. Why this man is given any credibility is beyond me. I forgot our country loves war and his bosses do too. The whole country with the help of a whole array of spineless bastards banging the war drums leading up to the invasion of Iraq was out for blood. The old blood long since dried and the new continuing to run bright red for almost five years just like the mouth of this neo-con killer. Worse is the local fish wrapper had his column in print today. The Bloody One deserves something for his lies too. click on picture for larger view
Matthews has been out of control for some time. Not nearly as vile as Billo or the Vulgar Pig Boy Limbo he as like many in the media deserve not the title of journalist. This is not here in support of Clinton but to make the point that if there ever is to be meaningful thoughtful discussions on issues of the day something has to change. And as a RPCV how did he get this way and to me he is an embarrassment. What a bunch of bs and hate he spews out in such a short period. Courtesy of Crooks and Liars
