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.

Large Amounts Of Marijuana Keep Man Alive And Forgetful

6.5 tons worth and that was just his stash. He thought the bags were rice but when you're 114 years old it's hard to keep track.

The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) said it had found 254 sacks of cannabis at the home of Sulaiman Adebayo in Ogun state, north of the commercial capital Lagos.

While living in West Africa there was no problem finding pot. Here there everywhere the bottom line is that people want this shit and there's no changing that and we are not criminals.

One way to obtain it there was to buy "wraps". A small amount of herb neatly wrapped up in paper that you rolled the joint in. Very convenient. Cost about 50 cents. Another common way was to buy a shopping bag full because that's what it came in. That was a mere 15 bucks. Locally grown and well above average in quality. Did the job quite nicely.

One time was staying in a college dorm room vacant during break. There was a timid knock on the door with an equally timid voice asking if we were "shitting" in the room. No was the answer with the next question being are you smoking "wee"? Hell no not us!!
