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.


Violence in Iraq 3/13/08

Mortar rounds hit the Green Zone this morning at 11.15. No casualties were reported. The US Military do not generally comment on indirect fire.

Indirect my ass you lying sacks of shit. These guys know exactly where the killers of their families are. Are we supposed to believe they're just pissing in the wind and got lucky how goddamn stupid is that? Stupid enough that all the stupids here take it as fact and that is news. I call bullshit.

Pentagon cancels release of controversial Iraq report.
What else would you expect from those whose primary mission is to cover the blood trail of those responsible. I don't play the lotto but if I did and won the big one I would give every penny away just to see murdering bastards swing like 'ol Saddam.

These people behind this killer hit it right out of the park today!!

Code Pink in action yesterday. Must be the same above. These women rock!


  1. that is a new one on me - they dont comment on indirect fire. so anyone killed who was not aimed at -- well they are not a statistic

    i dont blame bush or this war anymor e-- i blame the american public who lets the whiner/scumbag continue in public office

  2. Maybe when there's no gas to take the kiddies to the soccer game they will wake up. Can our society ever become aware I'm not sure.
