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.



111 nations, but not US, adopt cluster bomb treaty

This is just sick shit no other way around it. Look at this quote from the article.
"This is a treaty drafted largely by countries which do not fight wars," said John Pike, a defense analyst and director of GlobalSecurity.org.

Followed by this beaut.
"Treaties like this make me want to barf. It's so irrelevant. Completely feel-good," he said.

War whore lover SHAWN POGATCHNIK, Associated Press Writer was on his knees getting this story.

I am not proud of my country but to expect anything less at this time is being naive.

  1. We've been very slow to catch on to many of these things. Unless something's happened very recently, we still refuse to sign on to the land mine treaty. It took us two decades to sign the resolution against genocide - and even then only with the provision that it wouldn't apply to us. Read A Problem From Hell for a good description of that one.

    Yes, there are plenty of Americans who are probably "made sick" by such things. This week, though, they were obsessing about scarves. Hopefully, they'll find something else to do next week that will be equally useless.
