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.


Tell Me Something I Don't Know

BAGHDAD (AFP) - A top US general on Sunday warned that the military would strike back after hardline Iraqi Shiite leader Moqtada al-Sadr threatened to launch a new uprising by his militia.

What the fuck! How goddamn stupid is that anyway? No they're going to sit around and paddle the poodle and spend afternoons calling home.

To think Sadr or any of these guys will be influenced by what some tin star general threatens is beyond stupid. Doesn't anybody understand there will be no winning here ever! Bloggers do but not the sheeple or this whore media we have. We'll be listening to the same shit 20 years from now. If I was a drinking man I'd go to town and get all pissed up and be somebody. It's Sunday so will finish with an emphatic Jesus Christ!


  1. of, great pic!

    the once mighty US military --- completely frazzled and destroyed by Bush ---- all bush has to do is hang on for 8 more months -- make it look good for him and then, whammo dump into the next guy....

    meanwhile when we really need the military......

  2. "...warned that the military would strike back..." My ass!
    What a statement!
    That's about the whole story of the U.S. military command on the ground for the past four plus years: REACT. No plan. No goal, except "to win." No timetable. No progress made, except verbally - as in "We're making progress."
    No ground taken and secured. Even the "green zone", a multi-million dollar "safe" area is still under fire and can't be protected. And the bastard commanders have lost over 4,000 troops killed and they won't admit the total troops wounded. And why should I believe it's only 4,039 troops killed?
    It is way past time for all the sheeple and repubs to learn a well known and well understood military adjective. And take it to heart. It is simple. It is concise. It is exactly on point. Only three syllables. Repeat after me: clus ter fuck. Again: clus ter fuck. You get it? Now. All together, Iraq is a clusterfuck. It's time to bring our heroes home.
