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.

Snoopy Would Have Kept His Camel

Drug smugglers are using ultralights in their efforts at our southern front but it's not working so well.

In the past four months, three of the kite-winged motorized aircraft have crashed while hauling loads of marijuana into Arizona.

I have flown these machines a bit and I think with all the eyes out there this would be very difficult to accomplish on a regular basis. You cannot carry much weight so you would think cocaine but the article says pot.

Doesn't make squat bit of difference because it's coming in one way or the other someplace for sure. Tomorrow and every day after that.

Have driven our southern border in the early 90's and there was nobody out there. We were in a older Westphalia. The chances of making that same drive today in a similar vehicle without being contacted I bet are zilch.
