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.


So If They Can Do This

If this is true then I have a huge issue with all of it. Or is this a down town Yorker trying to be funny. I played golf with a fellow who grew up on Long Island just last Thursday. What an asshole!

The New York Police Department could take down a plane if necessary, Commissioner Ray Kelly said Sunday

You do not shoot down airliners with popguns street cops and swat teams carry and certainly even if you can bring a plane down over a populated area like NYC. That means missiles possibly?

I'm not sure what to think but if it's true then there needs to be a sit down and discussion about this.

I don't give a shit what city it is I do not want any to have weapons capable of doing so. What weapons do they have in their arsenal for ground attacks that also can be used against you and I.

I think he's a liar but just in case bama needs to check this out. WRONG - bama's on their side. He'll never give up one of his buds.
