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.


Bush Damn Near Gets Hammered In The Side Of The Head By Shoes In The Heavily Fortified Green Zone

Muntadar al-Zeidi, threw two shoes and missed the dodging target. He was heard saying to himself later "Allahdamnit I fucking missed- sonofabitch anyway".

I'm sorry he missed too. This is one American who appreciates the efforts Iraqi's are making. Mr. al-Zeidi gets OTC's stamp of approval for not accepting a bunch of bullshit during a press conference from a known liar and killer. Two big toes and two thumbs up and please let there be video. And there is-OH HAPPY DAYS -enjoy

Took the video out because it was making the page load slow.

This will live in infamy. Another embarrassing chapter in the chimp's blunder of a life.


  1. i wonder if they were condi's shoes

  2. It's a great day for all the underdogs of the world!

    P.S. I love this blog. Glad I found you. Thanks for the video help, too.

  3. I wonder if all Iraqi newsmen will be required to take off their shoes in future press conferences?

    Did you hear what Der Decider said afterwords? Pairs Hilton is smarter than this guy.

  4. Yes the underdogs scored today. A lot smarter!!

  5. No more shoes in the White House or vicinity. . .
    Damn Iraqis don't throw shoes for shit!
