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.


Iraq's Test Case Against American Soldiers

Iraq's prime minister on Sunday denounced a predawn American raid in southern Iraq during which two Iraqis were killed, saying his government intends to prosecute U.S. soldiers who carried out the operation.

If Vegas has odds on this put your money on it not happening.


  1. When are the Iraqis going to just let go and move forward. Heck its' been 24 hours already and we don't want to get bogged down in the past and tear Iraq apart. Investigation of wrongdoing by Americans is "sooo...last week" and anyway we might find out something worthwhile which would cause us to question why we are in Iraq in the first place. Iraqis, like progressives in America, just have "to get over it already and move on." Can't we talk about the NFL draft or something important for once?

  2. I was listening to this, this morning. This will and is getting bogged down with lies or whatever. They should just drop it and kick us out.

  3. I am too tired right now to read the
    Iraq SOFA. (Status Of Forces Agreement in Iraq)
