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 Not Nato Troops But Americans

Finally I see after almost two days the nine "Nato" Troops killed in the chopper crash were all American and careful now that comes straight from the biggest whore in every one's neighborhood.

And this piece corrects the misinformation that this was the largest loss of life associated with a helicopter in Afghanistan. It's the same old bullshit. No shots no Talibans no nothing as usual but investigate you betcha.

Meanwhile families and loved ones having just recently been informed are preparing to go through what their worst fears had been.

It's this country that's responsible for war and death in Afghanistan not NATO! They do this to confuse an easily confused populace that it's something other that what it it really is.


  1. Well said my friend.
    Sad but true.

    It is like it just does not matter any more.
    This kind a stuff does not even hit the MSM headlines any more.

    It is just another day in the neighborhood.
    Has America become so immune to reality that we have become complicit?

    YES! ! !
