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.

"TIME HORIZON" New Word On The Block

This shit doesn't get or deserve a link. El Chimpo and Maliki will attempt to set "aspirational goals" for troop draw downs. Biden said the administration was "finally facing reality."

Bullshit bullshit bullshit!! What Biden should have said was the sonofabitch is lying like always. Has this little prick ever told the truth we must leave Iraq now or something to that effect would be so pleasant to hear. Another stall as usual. Until it does it ain't happening and as always these fuckers bring nothing to the table and Biden gives a glimmer of hope where the reality is something other. I want to see parents hoping their kids have a safe trip home from that hellhole everyone of them as our troops begin a quick orderly departure from Iraq.
