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.

The Real Fighters

I don't have the words to express my admiration respect and thanks for all those arrested in front of the White House protesting the war in Afghanistan. Not many are out in the streets like this. Veterans for Peace are the best and the link goes to their site if you can spare something. Some are headed out to Afghanistan tomorrow unless they get an Assange pulled on them. I am going to try and do more than what I have. These people are the best!

  1. God bless those good people man. It brings me to despair to hear and see criticism of them by individuals who couldn't carry the spiritual jocks of those good people.

  3. If people want change of any kind, only going out to the streets will help achieve it.

  4. That's for damn sure Duta-we don't like to do that too much unless Fox Whore News tells them to. Thanks for bringing that up!

    And for you boys-remember how these bastards treated and still do not only Vets but us as well way back when. It was that kind of crap that makes me despise them even more to this day.

    Over the years there have been several times I felt so strongly the need to go to DC when there were protests. I never did but did do a few more local things. In retrospect it would have been a waste of money.

    These people and others have never let up and do inspire me. Before the end of the year if the plan plays out I will move and begin a different type of life and there will be time to participate in events such as this. There will not be much money at all but I'll try like hell express my views out on the streets like these real Americans.
