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.


Outta Dodge In Afghanistan

Meaning the Dutch are going home starting yesterday.

Next year it will be the UK and Canada. The Netherlands lost 24 of their best with 140 wounded for a cause that was long ago lost.

Lately on the so called "news" the term used is coalition forces as expected. What a bunch of bs as by far the majority of those fighting and dieing are American.

It's a way to get the dummy's here to think that over 40 countries are totally behind our "War on Terror". Nothing could be farther from the truth.


  1. Going Dutch = Getting the Hell Out of Afghanistan!

  2. The Dutch are a bit smarter when it comes to war. They've seen it first hand that is invasion. Kinda like Afghannystan and the US.

  3. That was Bush's coalition. Obama will have to make his own coalition, if he wants one.
    Anyway, it's interesting to know how the Ducth account for their retreat from Afghanistan.

  4. The Dutch are saner than we are apparently.
