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.


Guns Can't Stop Heat Deaths

I read this when I got up and stuff like this chaps my ass. In that it's okay and is expected when there is a change with "leadership" a few troops are going to bite the big one because the new leaders haven't got with the program yet and that's all okay. Bull shit but who am I/we to question our "leaders" in the time of wars for lies and for the benefit of our nations corporations and the top 1% in this country.   You bastards!


  1. And all along I thought these Big Brass Assholes were supposed to be learning from their predecessors mistakes and not practicing to make the same ones again.

  2. OK, so I'm thinking "Afghanistan or where?" and follow the link to discover the army can't figure out how to manage the heat in South Carolina. What the heck is up with that??

  3. Give 'em a Bible, and send them on their way.

    More Support! for The Troops!

  4. No shit you guys. Haven't heard much about religion being an integral part of training at the Air Force Academy lately but you can bet it still goes on.

    Billie I spaced mentioning that and I should have. I guess the question remains in how many succumb to heat exhaustion "over there".
