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.


Just Don't Have A Hell Of A Lot

Once again find myself stagnant even though the debauchery and bullshit continues at all levels. The chimp is supposed to talk about the war Thursday on CNN. Our guys continue to die for his lies and this whore outlet will allow him to spew even more plus he will be armed with the nonsense the general will be spitting out of his pie hole today.

It's so good to be back and being able to read what my fellow bloggers are saying and informing others about. Am sick of white and very anxious to be able to take pictures that have other colors.

A very nice thing happened yesterday. Pauline from West Africa Always Wins linked to OTC. Highly unexpected and will try hard to meet a bit of the level she writes at. From the first time I visited I was a fan for several reasons and one of those are her photos. One of the latest is below. Life and politics in West Africa in short insightful posts that are always a pleasure to read.
Thank you Pauline!!
