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.


No Shit People Die When Bombs Go Off

BAGHDAD - Two bombs went off within minutes of each other in a crowded shopping district in the capital Thursday, killing up to 55 and wounding at least 130 — a reminder that deadly attacks are a daily threat even though violence is down.
You whore! They've gotten reminded every day for five years asshole.

Like in previous such attacks
Yea you smart sonofabitch when bombs go off close to many people there are excellent results sometimes.

Iraqis were enjoying a pleasant spring evening
Until the boom huh? There's booms all the time and the booms are never going away that's the fucking point. The booms started for an agenda of a very few with lies that were successful. Stick the pleasant up your ass.

Wounded ‘were crying for help'
I bet they fucking were. Loud too do ya think?

"I saw a leg and a hand falling near me as I was walking"
Show the results over and over again and maybe mom and dad will eventually envision their Ethan or Brianna or both getting blown all to fuck just like the Iraqi insurgents kids and say finally after all this killing- enough! It's a pipe dream.

The U.S.-Iraqi team killed nine suspected insurgents
Stick this clear up your ass too!
I wish I could cast a similar judgment on the insurgents in my country. It would be easier as there is nothing suspect about ours. The term is wrong because ours are Americans and yours are Iraqi. They hate our fucking guts! They will hate us forever that is the reality. You are owned by by the the dark side and will continue to fuck our country even when it's completely dead and rotting.

This does not even deserve a link. There are some within conventional media that wish to frame stories such as this in a different way but if they do so it does not get printed. The problem of course this is the horse shit the masses see in this country. Just what in the hell is it going to take for us to get out of Iraq? It sure as hell not happening anytime soon. We are so screwed.

  1. You have to wonder when our troops are going to come home. The Bush regime keeps forcing them into an occupation that is causing catastrophic violence against the Iraqi people.

  2. surge working my ass...

    this is a lull in the action ---
