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.


A War Whore From The Past Has Died

Robert McNamara has died.

It would be our policy to use nuclear weapons wherever we felt it necessary to protect our forces and achieve our objectives.

Robert McNamara

Happy this man never never got his way but it's the same o years later even with a person in charge who is supposed to be on our side.

Another from him.

Neither conscience nor sanity itself suggests that the United States is, should or could be the global gendarme.
Robert McNamara

At least this man served his country but it has been decades since this man played a role and we did not learn a damn thing. He is no different that the bastards that took us to war in Irak for lies.

Then I see four more of ours were killed this morning in Afghanistan. A roadside bomb-imagine that.

Sick shit this is!


  1. I love it! War Whore is right One Fly! ;)

    Our soldiers are going to pick up the dying pace in Afghanistan aren't they? This makes me physically ill so early in the am here. :(

  2. Thanks Dusty and of course the sheep here have forgotten long ago how the Russky's got their asses kicked all the way back to the Kremlin with more men and resources than we have now.

    I think we're sadly getting an indication of the amount of death coming in Afghanistan.

  3. "but it's different this time" is all I hear from the media and the politicians. no, it's not any different than Viet Nam--same old shit all over again...
