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.


bama Keeps 10K Troop Offer In Irak Open - And The Rest Ain't Coming Home In December

Yup the peace prez offers guns instead of withdrawal. The 46,000 are slated to all come home at the end of December. The linked to article has plenty of info as to why it won't happen.

The fact of the matter is that it was never going to happen! There are no plans ready to withdraw these troops and all that is associated with them. No way! So it will be another photo-op for the wheels from DC on xmas day.. You know what dogs do to wheels.

I wonder what the number of contractors is as well. We don't hear a thing about them or our grand embassy.

And the sheep will bleet for more.


  1. "if it wasn’t vitally important for the accomplishment of our mission in Iraq.”

    We never have and never will know what "our mission" in Iraq really is. At least the Perfumed Princes in the Pentagon will get a chance to blood their proteges.

  2. That is for damn sure.

    I thought you were on vacation?

  3. The lying motherfuckers! Just you WATCH if some poor woman tries to get some sort of feminine health care though! NOW Mr. General Sir BETRAYUS says our "mission" in Afghani is going to be to go into the mountains and root out alqaida! No fucking shit! He JUST said that! I thought that was the mission ten fucking years ago?
    NOBODY - NOFUCKINGBODY is saying a THING about HOW they are going to MIRACULOUSLY cause jobs to happen or gert people back into SOMETHING with a fucking roof on it!


  4. You see Mr. N. and literally not a soul says shit except guys like us. Do you think the dumb ass dims in dc will demand something other-of course not

  5. Chatter has it that the State Dept wants 5K contractors [mercenaries] to guard the white elephant embassy and their staff.

    The rethugs will now run as anti-war candidates.
    Dems give this war of choice president a pass because he is supposedly a dem.
    Shame on these bastards and bitches.
    I despise them all.
