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.


Petraeus Speak With True Tongue

I heard from this war whore one of the few times I had the radio on this weekend. Out of his pie hole came "transnational extremists" and I thought this boy is talking about us. Of course what the f do I know! 

So this guy is once again  is launching a media blitz to drum up support for the war.

Why do we have a General doing this kind of shit and why does Bama let him. Dumb shit -smack me along side the head. Bama's a player here too and the General says all kind of shit on Sunday's whore programs for war profiteers whose stock probably went up a couple notches knowing there is no end in sight for the war they love so much.

We are so screwed!

Stop the Madness!


  1. He's fighting like hell not to be the next Westmorland.

  2. Look at the "bright" side of things. As long as the war is outside , no one will start a war inside. Civil war is quite an option, you know, in the present state of affairs.

  3. Tom I am often miffed at what Petraeus says without ramification. I came to the conclusion that eventually if things work out he is going the Eisenhower route.

  4. Once again everyone is pretty much correct and if that happened Jim and he turned out to be an Eisenhower that maybe wouldn't be all that bad considering.

  5. Yeah I would be okay with that too Tom! We could do a lot worse!
