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.

No Need To Tell Suspects Of Right To Call

Iowa police officers are not required to tell suspects about their right to call a lawyer or relative, even when they ask to contact someone else, the state appeals court ruled Wednesday. Iowa law allows suspects to contact relatives or an attorney "without unnecessary delay," and requires police to permit "a reasonable number of telephone calls" to secure a lawyer.

I can see that some arrested piss the badges off and why they would not offer any assistance but when they ask to call someone else outside of a lawyer or a relative and they do not have to explain who they can call that's bullshit. Things are done differently in the cornfield but it's probably the same in other states as well but that doesn't make it right. Asshole right wing judges.
