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.

Recession Now Hitting The Cornfield

A recession that economists say has taken hold of the nation is now gripping Iowa. The nation is further along in the recession than the region, and Missouri and Minnesota are further along than Iowa. But Iowa is certainly moving in the same direction.

Bottom line there is a tremendous amount of money floating around in Iowa. When land sells for 5-6K an acre, millions of hogs being raised plus cattle and chickens, machinery everywhere that costs hundreds of thousands of dollars there can't help but to be money circulating that supports the ag side of the economy.

But like other places it just took a bit longer for the 'ol trickle down to arrive just like it did here and when it arrived it did so quickly as it eventually will any other local.

The only time trickle down has been a proven success from these rat fuck bastards.
