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.

Holding Their Hands While The Iraqs Led

A few pieces from this gem.

Iraqi police talked with property owners, broke locks and led the way
The Americans followed with tools the Iraqis lacked
A team of advisers was there, too, to look for things the Iraqis could do to improve their tactics
Unless we enhance their ability to secure their own environment, we'll never leave
The special groups, militias and thugs will have their last breath within six months
Iraqi security forces lack a reliable supply network

How many years has it been and these guys can't wipe their ass on their own and even if they could there's no toilet paper. "When they stand up we'll stand down" the liar in chief said over and over. It's a failure all that it ever could be and if we do leave and head next door that will be the same too. We are so screwed and those in Congress have enabled it all to happen with no end in sight of our country continuing the same some place else.

This is sick shit!
