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.

Get Caught With Pot In The Cornfield-You Win The "Double Whammy"

Go read this thing. All I can do is shake my head.

Failure to have a drug tax stamp on the controlled substance will result in a charge, in addition to being charged with possession of the illegal substance.

Here are the fines and the stamps are only good for six months.

$5 per gram for processed marijuana
$750 per unprocessed marijuana plant
$250 per gram of any other controlled substances
$400 per 10 doses (pill form) if not sold by weight

To order drug tax stamps go to the Iowa Department of Revenue at Taxpayer Services, Hoover Building Fourth Floor, Des Moines, Iowa, or call (515) 281-8966 to make an appointment. Order forms are available online at http://www.state.ia.us/tax/taxlaw



And then they wonder why none are being sold.

Head is still being shaken.
