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.

G Men Can Stop And Search Us Within 100 Miles Of The Border

Using data provided by the U.S. Census Bureau, the ACLU has determined that nearly 2/3 of the entire US population (197.4 million people) live within 100 miles of the US land and coastal borders.

Can you say Police State because I sure as hell can. Open the door for abuse and it will come. Citizens driving within this zone nowhere close to the boarder being detained and you can bet many aren't treated nice at all. Ah-Amerika.

  2. Does anyone else see a connection between the deployment of the 3rd Infantry Division from combat duty to the U.S. to control any "civilian unrest" and this declaration by Homeland Security?
    Just wondering. . .

  4. When I read that, I was thinking, "thank God, it doesn't affect me." Then I clicked the link and saw the friggin' map and sure enough, Fort Wayne, IN is included. Looks like I may be writing about this tomorrow.
