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.


How's That Work'in Out For Ya In Iraq

Pretty damn swell for our guys and that's as it should be finally. For Iraqi's it's the shits. Death and mayhem plenty.

Care to read the rest of the terror people experience on a daily basis go here. Plenty to peruse. 

It wasn't like this before the invasion perpetrated by a few all reasons based on pure lies.

The death and destruction carried out on a daily basis is our legacy.

I don't give a shit what any body says Iraq is a failure and the ones responsible should swing like Saddam did.

My offer of pulling the trip rope on these monsters who did this remains open! 


  1. Keep your eyes on Muqtada Al Sadr.

  2. Where's that boy been. He's a player for sure. This ain't over by a long sight.

  3. Chatter has it that he has been in Iran studying to become an Ayatolla.
    If he gets those credentials he will have even more pull. I think his party got 27 seats in parliament. Yet Biden snubbed his people. Huge mistake on Biden's part. Al Sadr is sticking with his plan that ALL foreign troops MUST leave Iraq.
