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.


A Few Things

One of yesterday's posts was about an Iraq veteran who committed suicide taking his brother with him. Yesterday the Field Negro writes of his brother-in-law doing the same last weekend.
We share links but when shit like this happens it seems this hit is closer to home. Sick shit all of this is. Sorry for you and the families Field.
You dirty bastards!

If you read this from Crooks and Liars a story from Texas that is all about voter suppression that is happening in many states. For anyone to think that this election is in the bag at any level is being naive. I have not had a good feeling ever about the election ever. Look the fuck out and no matter what it is interesting and history in the making.

US violated Venezuela air space
As if things aren't screwed up enough let's fuck with Hugo that's always good fodder as the media needs to keep the villain image alive and well just in case chimpy feels in his gut action needs to be taken to protect the Amerikan people.

McCain: Obama's Iran remarks show inexperience
McChimp compares Iran to the old Soviet Union among several other quips that illustrate that the candle flame is very low for this man who I at one time respected. Give him a bit for his service to our country but it's difficult to even do that given what comes out of his mouth. Way too scary.
