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.

Peace Corps Volunteers Asked To Spy By Bush Whores

Came home and saw this and can not tell you how much this has pissed me off. As a RPCV (abbreviation for Returned Peace Corp Volunteer) Ghana 77-79 the idea that a US embassy official would dare to even venture that proposition to a PCV anywhere is another example of how depraved these sonsofbitches are. Fresh out of that cornfield in '77 I can tell you if I had been approached in that manner naive as I was they would have been told to go fuck themselves. As it was at times people would say as I walked "CIA" because as you may or may not know the US fucked with Ghana as they have so many countries around the world.

Doing a bit more research ran across Bolivia Rising a place one might want to look at now and again and has been included in my blogroll. The neo-killers hate Hugo and Evo because they stand for all that they are not. I can tell you the masses of humanity in the Third World understand completely the dynamics of the United States meddling and how it affects them directly. Here we have a nation of sheep who do not even have a fucking clue. Jesus fucking christ! The people of Central and South America will not let themselves be denied Democracy not ever again.

  3. hey way to go, i am a rpcv also and agree with you but congrats you almost make the case for the fuckaroo's that we are a bunch on idealistic radicals with little more than idle banter to contribute intelligently.

    try making a point without all the f bombs.

    but if you can't fuck it, go with what everyone else does.

    read memoirs of an economic hitman, then you'll have a clue to how sinisterly twisted the peace and development game gets.

    fuck'n A.
