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.


Why Is The Senate GOP Showing Flexibility

I remember the Medicare bill when Sen.Harkin addressed an empty chamber and explained why it and the halls outside normally full of lobbyists were empty. It was real easy to do that for him and he was correct when he stated they got everything they wanted and there was no need for them to be there.

Same here. They are a bit nicey nicey now because bama is going to sell the middle class out once again. This is not difficult to understand. The only thing left is to see how bad we're going to get screwed.

Watch it happen. Meanwhile the rich will pay little more in taxes and samo for corporations while unlimited funding continues for a nation who loves never ending wars.

You betcha!
