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.


And What Else Is New

Capitol Hill Democrats are muscling through a deficit-swelling spending bill. Really? I haven't seen any strong arm tactics by anybody on my side at least nothing that stands out. This is the muscle-

Not a single House Republican voted for the bill. Some 28 Democrats, chiefly moderates and abortion opponents, opposed the measure.

Obama was talking bipartisanship again just the other day. A stepping stone or something we can build on I hear from my side in reference to the HCB. Bull shit! There isn't time enough to build on anything. I watched this building and steps that have been taken for decades and look what the fuck we got now.

Now is the real line in the sand that will determine if we can ever get representative government back not that we ever had it.

  1. Mostly run of the mill stuff. The Whopper is always DOD. We spend more on DOD that the rest of the countries spend on their various military operations COMBINED. In Congress nobody was ever punished for the care and feeding of the monolithic killing machine. Obama only gets cudos when he quotes Niebuhr. I think that asshole was Hitler's coverboy: go figure Repugs like Dems when they act like Nazis. That's bipartisanship.
