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.


Pissed Off In Afghanistan

Not any of us guys that are there but the locals.

Imagine that and the piece makes reference to the Koran but you can bet they were just as pissed before that.

Only Americans will have an issue with that cuz we're there to help and and well you know.

They didn't understand next door in Irak either and bitched and moaned as well but that didn't hinder the cause of the US to bring democracy there as well.

Our country loves the blood and guts way of forcing freedom and democracy down other country's throats.

Who cares what they want? We know what they need and they're gonna get it whether they want it or not ya see there!


  1. Your friend the Pope has made an appeal to Afghani's to cool it and for Religious tolerance though with the cartoons and everything else this put those people over the edge. I'm sure with much instigation and prodding from Al Qaeda the Taliban and other Islamists.

  2. No occupation.
    No insurgency.
    It is not our country.
    They will not allow it to be our colony.
    Many have tried in the past, and got the same result.
    History repeats its self once more.
