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.

Convoy Bomb And OTC Calls Bull Shit

Yea no shit Cisco-I don't care squat about this because it's never going to stop.
A roadside bomb exploded near a convoy carrying U.S. ambassador to Baghdad Chris Hill in southern Iraq, but the envoy was unhurt, the U.S. embassy said on Monday

But what I call bullshit on is this-

Iraq is littered with munitions dumps from the time of Saddam Hussein, many of them left unguarded by U.S. forces after the 2003 invasion to oust him. Militants have since then had a steady supply of explosives with which to fashion home made bombs that can easily be concealed in pot holes or trash piles.

Why in the fuck if this is true are these munitions dumps still around after all these years? Give me a goddamn break here. I just get a serious attitude when it comes to dumb ass shit like this.

  1. It is dumb ass shit ain't it? Makes me wonder if anyone in charge over there has two brain cells to rub together.

  2. Are you sure they weren't left there on purpose to continue the charade? It plays perfectly into the hands of the likes of Haliburton and others to put this charade on a continous "loop cycle" to justify an illegal occupation. Think we're leaving? Just say S.Korea 60 years later!!!

  3. I can't believe they are still there but I would not doubt if they were left there to arm the civil war that any idiot knew would happen once we get out of they way not it looks like it is already getting under way.
