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.


Panetta Lies Like A Rock

Why are these questions even asked? It's a waste of every ones time and only gives these so called (reporters) justification to themselves that they've actually done something when the reality is anyone with an ounce of brains knows what the answer is going to be when you ask an obvious dumb ass question.

We all know the answer to that.


  1. What the Obama junta wants from Libya is oil. Period.

    Libya is the largest producer of oil on the African continent followed by Nigeria. But Nigeria, with a huge population of 100 million is much more problematic. Which is why the CIA has been busy trying to topple the Nigerian government for more than a decade.

    None of this is complicated and Obama -- like Bush before him, has a foreign policy underlined not by human rights concerns but by oil needs.

  2. Well said Christopher - thank you for that.

    While down in the 4-Corners area last week ran across a younger fellow who was retired and just returned from three years in Kenya and would not really answer what he was doing. He was up to no fucking good - you can bet on it!

    While in Ghana those many years ago was called CIA plenty times because they knew how we interfered with their hero Nkrumah.
