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.

A Pivotal Time In Afghannystan

We'll go with the usual smart ass shit and you determine the rest. How bout this -

Form a  new 58 member National Guard unit filled with Wisconny urban types and give a 40-hour crash course in a variety of agricultural practices after which they will be sent to the war in Afghanistan to teach just that. To be fair some have a bit of farm back round but it's not stated for certain any of the 58 are actually engaged in farming. Need to be fair along with the other.

I feel sorry for these guys. Tell friends what your mission is going to be and have to watch them hauled off to the emergency room from busting their insides up from laughing so hard. And you haven't even left the States yet.
