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.


Another Milestone In Aghanistan

And this is after years of getting several #2's and bunch of 3's and a whole lot of civilians in the quest for something that even idiots know is unattainable.

Check out what Russ has to say on another very important milestone over at the Private Buffoon. We always want to outdo Russia ya know there.

Our country loves war death and destruction over everything else. Food for hungry kids so they can think better than on a stomach that does not rumble. No we want the rumble of C-130's bringing fresh human fodder and bullets so we can perform the next to impossible.

How many will perish today so the few in power have something to jerk off to!

  1. How many Empires have to crash and burn in Afghani dust before reality sets in. Even the Brits are not paying attention to their own history, this must be the third time they have had boots on the ground there. Empires leave, the tribal leaders and the poppy fields remain.

  2. It's so old all thoughts turn to disgust almost immediately.

    There's a story coming Holte.

  3. We have the wrist watch, they have the time.
    Unfortunately I believe Marjah is just a stepping stone for Patreus and the boyz. Kandahar is their real propaganda aim. If they enter Kandahar it will make Fallujah look like a walk in the park.
