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 Mas No Mas

Had two conversations actually three this morning with friends and naturally the state of the union and world is discussed plus the weather. A giant boil on the ass of this country is that this piss ant of a simpleton president can alone decide to attack other country's. Just how fucked up is that? Plenty but what chaps my ass even more is Congress didn't take that authority away from this man particularly since '06. You'll do what ever the fuck you want anyway but at least if there's a discussion in Congress you war loving non fighting bastards will get called out for what you are by the very few members there who speak of reality.

Yea things are getting expensive and there's a bunch of turmoil with a lot blood and guts we don't see many places. All sorts of ideas on how to cope or maybe adjust to these increases. The idea you do not hear is to get the fuck out of Iraq. What's so hard to understand that it is because of Iraq the world is in such turmoil.

Will nice weather ever arrive? This is what it was like this morning.
