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.

There Has Been An Uptick

In deaths - in Afghanistan.

The chest stars and head commander assured us of that.

This weekend one of the chesters said we be there much longer than the prez said we were gonna leave. "A lot longer" I think I may have heard.

There are more a humm'in.

Our country loves war and death.

Those in DC who vote and say they are on our side are liars and whores just as bad as the ones who do the voting for the other side.

The house could end our wars now if they chose. But they won't.

These fuckers are not on my side I don't give a shit!

Never will the US say that's enough. No way.

They don't stop the oil it's a whole new ball game.

We are in for a very rough ride.

LTFO!

  1. Well said. The dems have accepted endless wars with out borders. It is the status quo of America. Shame on them for supporting the W doctrine that a supposed dem [Obama] has continued and will escalate. Shame on these camouflaged dems for supporting this insanity.
