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.


It's What's Called Tough Shit

Well it seems some Iraqi's are angry the US is removing it's combat forces but leaving 50,000 to advise and assist the populace.

Well I hear you people and I have an idea how you feel about that and understand the reasons for that anger.

But I'm angry too! Been that way for a long time and anyone who knows the truth about this country's relationship with yours since the year 2000 is probably just as angry as I.

Being angry didn't help my cause just like it's not going to help yours.

You need to go after the pieces of shit that are responsible for you being so angry.

The treasonous duo of the Chimp and his dark master Cheney and their compadres of death. I'm all with you on that endeavor if it's pursued and as stated on many occasions I'll be honored to pull the trip rope on what could be the worlds worst killers of humanity.

To me having 50,000 Americans in your country is by no means "leaving" so much of the original anger remains. You being annoyed that the fighters are getting out won't change a thing.

I am truly sorry for your country but for both of us it's the same---tough shit!

Will the anger be replaced with niceness to hopefully reach out to the other side to open a dialog?

No way-never will there be a pass given for what happened during the Bush Reign of Terror-never.

Tough shit and I don't care anymore if people dislike me for that stance or for reminding them of that when appropriate.


  1. I think we should send Bush and Cheney
    on a goodwill mission there. Yeah and his daughter Liz. Hehehehe we'll give the Iraqis plenty of opportunity...I mean notice. hehehehe

  2. happy? wtf most days I'm not happy, satisfied might describe it, life is what you make it. I love it when journalist [wtf is a journalist anyways] other than a guy with a job commenting about something that is supposed to influence my decisions in life. I aint buying what he's sellin'. Hey OF you gotta see the comment I got on that email thing I wrote yesterday.

  3. I've seen it. I almost posted. You did the right thing. Make the other side bring the truth of their continual accusations. No mercy to these people.
