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.


Dressed Up Talibans

Dozens some dressed as American soldiers attacked two bases getting inside one before being stopped. One young person was killed. Here's what bothers me.

The response to the attack was swift and deadly. Afghan security forces, along with U.S. troops, killed about 15 insurgents at FOB Salerno and six more at FOB Chapman, while three others were killed by an airstrike after they were spotted fleeing the scene of the attacks, NATO said.

You fuckers-who do you think you're trying to bullshit?

You just don't go out and find these guys just like that. If it were that easy we would have killed all of them long before now.

They went out and shot anything that moved! That's what the hell went on.

And another thing don't blur the reality and say Nato said this shit. It's us-we're the ones!


  1. US war policy -- Oops! Sorry! What the hell. It is just collateral damage. If they weren't guilty, they shouldn't have been running.

  2. They should have known this from the beginning but this is much worse than Vietnam not just in time but in their relentless bag of tricks. Man they better watch all Afghans. I warn my sons not to trust them and keep a constant eye on them.

  3. And that's the way it is JC!

    I hope your boys listen Jim.
