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.

Another Month Of The Same

Death that is on our second war front a place called Afghanistan a place where many Americans can't find on a map and mostly young men are sent and killed and maimed with little or no recognition of their deaths anywhere until the families are informed.

Will America ever say enough to their kids being killed for - what is that reason again as I seem to have lost focus on why.

What ever it is I believe the answer is no because we love our wars and death way too much to give it up for the things needed so desperately here at home. After all the war machine and the rich need to be fed first and continually ya see there.

  2. Starting to look more and more like Vietnam every day.

    Ain't it kinda strange how there have been more fatalities during the first two years of a supposed anti-war president than there were during the first 7 1/4 years of the administration of the idiot who put our troops there in the first place.

    Can anyone remind me again just why the fuck we're there anyway?
