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.


The Bush's Beheading Buddies

Saudi Arabia beheaded two men Tuesday. Last year, the number of executions in Saudi Arabia jumped more than four-fold, with 158 people killed compared with 39 the previous year. Saudi law does not disqualify confessions obtained by torture or other illegal means. Female defendants were at the mercy of an all-male judiciary that enforces rules.

Of course those in charge turn a blind eye to the nasty shit being perpetrated on foreigners and women in a country we get oil from and have military bases in which to launch aggression against others. Granted some of these people did bad things but many times the trials are a sham and what the women are accused of is common here. Of course torture is used too. This country is at the extreme of Islam.

Oh yea where did most of the hijackers hail from??
