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.

Winning My Ass

The United States is now winning the war that two years ago seemed lost.

Just wanted to scream when I read this piece of shit article. A couple other beauts.

Insurgency as a whole has withered to the point where it is no longer a threat to Iraq's future.

That does not mean the war has ended

This is the message being played out in the media. Violence is down but still there have been 11 US troops killed this month. Iraq Today tells a bit of a different story with reports of incidents that to me are not acceptable.

Hard to believe those fighting are doing so to help Bushmiester and his gang as that's what it does so maybe there's something to it. Major violence can erupt at any time and will never believe for a moment that this war for whores will ever be won whatever that means.
