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.


We Get Lip Service Plus Fines And Incarceration

A couple bloggers I have ran across have  written this is a big step when bama said it was "entirely legitimate" to debate if the U.S. war on drugs was working. Really?

He also said.

Now I don't know what the rest of you think but I call this the samo type of lip service. A distraction that implies that someone will move forward with the beginnings of a dialog about making changes on our third war front. A ploy to distract and all of a sudden a year or two has gone by and nothing has changed. It's Lucy again and again.

But most important bama said this. "I am not in favor of legalization" Business as usual. Fuck bama-fuck the dims and the repugs and every other single person who makes the choice to continue on the same path we have been on for decades.

Nothing is changing except for this countries shift to the far right and it's continued love affair with wars,killing and incarceration of those who don't want to get along exactly the way you're supposed to even though they bring not one bit of harm to others in our society.
